Come Away

As I travel around the Pacific Northwest, I see people fragmented by the various responsibilities in their lives. They need to get away. There seems to be no “margin” in their lives at all. They move from thing to thing and activity to activity with no rest or relaxation to call their own.

Even technology invades our lives, and our response to it piles more on rather than creating space for rest. Our world demands more, more, more, and our inner being begs for rest, rest, rest in the busyness of our lives.

The Warm Beach Camp Experience offers a profound opportunity to get away and renew our body, soul, relationships, and perspective of life.

The call of God on our lives draws us to an intentional move toward rest. At Warm Beach Camp, we recognize that “keeping the path clear to the cross” includes making a time and place for rest in our lives. The Camp’s desire is to help people get away and let God meet with them. And when He does, the margin of His purposes appears.


So, come away and find rest unto your soul.

Connecting people to Jesus at Rainier Retreat Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries partners with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort to make Rainier Camp & Retreat Center home for many of Crystal’s seasonal workers. Serving our Guests at Rainier Camp is a true call of God and a fantastic opportunity for Warm Beach Camp Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I can't lie, it's a challenge, as most of the guests on the mountain don't know Jesus. The difficulty lies in presenting the Gospel in a way ...
