Breakfast for the Highest Bidder

K2C Auction 2017The day of the auction the energy in the tent was evident, the items displayed for auction were impressive – vacations, outdoor gear, grills, toys, handmade items, and baked goods… you can’t forget the baked goods! The Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction takes months of planning, lots of volunteer help, generous donations and a tent full of bidders. Who would have guessed the talk of the day would be a dozen cinnamon rolls and a gallon of granola? The bidding for this item went on for a good 15 minutes, the competing bids swirling around the tent. Finally the cinnamon rolls and granola “SOLD” for $500! Celia Hansen, the Camp’s baker, offered to make a second identical item, for the next highest bidder. Bringing the grand total for this famous Camp breakfast to $1,000!

The day went off without a hitch, fun was had by all and the auction tent was cleared out and cleaned up as quickly as it was all put together. All of this to help fund Kids 2 Camp scholarships that make camp possible for kids who otherwise couldn’t attend. Last year 606 kids got to experience the joy of camp, hear the gospel and experience life change.

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
