Changing lives with stinky feet

k2c image-logo2Check out this story from last summer and learn about the life-changing impact summer camp can have in a child’s life.

In the quiet stillness of Warm Beach Camp, secret plans were being laid in Cabin One. Counselor “Chip” briefed his guys on the scheme.

     “Okay boys, remember to be perfectly quiet. And don’t spill anything!”

With bowls full of water, they turned out the lights, and snuck into the night. As the boys crept up to Cabin Two’s door, Chip whispered,

     “One, two… three!”

The boys flung the cabin door wide open and yelled in unison,

     “YOUR FEET STINK!”

Startled, the boys from Cabin Two sat right up in their bunk beds. Not knowing what to think — the boys from Cabin Two began throwing socks and yelling,

      “NO, YOUR FEET STINK!”

Chip gathered his boys in the center of the room.

     “O.K. guys, settle down, settle down. Cabin One is here to do a foot washing! We know Jesus showed his friends that love serves others, even if that means washing smelly, sweaty feet!”

From rowdy yelling to shocked silence, the boys in Cabin Two slowly started to laugh. Instead of a prank, they were getting… a foot bath?

With that, the Cabin One boys washed their friend’s feet. As the boys stepped into the soapy water that night, the odor of stinking feet faded into a sacred, life-changing memory of camp.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. 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 ...
