“I volunteer because it is a place where I have a tangible impact on other people’s lives through doing something I love to do - working with horses. It is also a place where I feel safe and am able to grow my skills and character.”
– Shelby Janes
“I volunteer because it is good for my mind, body, and soul. I get to build amazing relationships with the horses, riders, and staff. It gives me a purpose beyond that of the workplace and school. I get to see lives changed, which in turn changes my life because I get inspired to never give up on the things that I want to achieve.”
“I volunteer at Warm Beach Camp because it allows me to be me and not feel like I have to prove myself to anyone. Camp is where I am able to continue learning about horses, help others achieve their full potential, and it feels like a place that I am welcome for being me. I am willing to drive an hour every weekend to volunteer for roughly 4 to 5 hours a week just to get my horse time. Also Warm beach camp is a place that is helping me overcome obstacles in my past and is showing me what being part of a community feels like. The staff that work there year round make you feel welcome and there is never a dull moment. Warm beach camp is a place that I can call home and want to continue being a part of this horse community forever. If there is anything else you need, I am happy to help.“

New Zealand native, Lisa Tremain, is excited to be back at Warm Beach Camp to serve as the Horsemanship Director where she hopes to share her love of horses and God with others. Lisa first came to Warm Beach Camp as a WIT (Wrangler in Training) in 2003, and since has served in other camp ministries throughout New Zealand.
