Dad & Me Weekends: a story from one Dad

Dad & Me Weekends offer an oasis of quality time loaded with memory making experiences. Every year over 100 dads invest in relationship with their kids through Dads & Sons and Dads & Daughters weekends. Here’s what one Dad said about the weekend he spent with his son:

Dad and SonThe staff was wonderful and we really appreciated all the activities laid out before us, without the pressure of timelines. It was so nice to have a few things structured for us that helped us to have form to our day, yet without pressure. This was a big weekend of firsts for my son, BB guns, archery, canoes, rockets, mountain boards, and his first time on a horse as well. My son really enjoyed the mountain boards most of all! I really appreciated the time we spent bonding, the way the camp leaders helped the boys relate to us as fathers and associated it with the love and guidance of our Father was wonderful. I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful experience and I don’t think either of us will ever forget.

I appreciated the way that Christ was approached gently as well. I have committed my whole heart to Christ, but my son is still in transit. I hope and pray for him to come to that point some day himself and I hope not by the painful path it took me. But the gentle and more relational approach, while still unabashed honesty of the leader’s profession of faith, was at a level where he didn’t tune it out and I think it made an impact. It certainly has laid open the door for further discussion and opportunities. Thank you so much!

Over and over again, Dad & Me Weekends offer testimony of how life changes here. Our 2011 schedule is:

Dads & Sons: June 3-6, September 9-11

Dads & Daughters: June 10-12, September 16-18

We hope to see you there!

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 ...
