Embracing the Vision Campaign Coming to Central Washington

In May 2008, Warm Beach Camp had the opportunity to share the Embracing the Vision Campaign with many friends of the Camp at two exciting banquets, one in Bellevue and the other in Everett. Now, the Camp is getting ready to share the story with the friends of Warm Beach who live in central and north-central Washington.

The $8.6 million Embracing the Vision Campaign forms a foundation for more effective and comprehensive ministry. It will help ensure that the vision for this ministry continues to flourish into the next generation by providing significant funds for camper programs, capital projects, and operational activities. In brief, the Campaign allows WBC to fulfill its mission by investing in people, community, and the environment, providing funding for both operational and capital projects.

Among the Campaign’s capital projects is the completion of the outfall for the new Waste Water Treatment Facility and the expansion and upgrade of the Camp’s flagship building, Cedar Lodge, including moving the restrooms to the main floor!

A successful Embracing the Vision campaign will also provide the necessary resources to fund many programs and needs that continue to put people first at WBC, such as expanding the Kids 2 Camp program, multiplying the ministry, upgrading athletic and recreational equipment, building and equipping leaders, expanding horsemanship options and adding to the Campership Endowment Fund.

The Central Washington banquet will be held at:

The Wenatchee Convention Center
on Saturday, May 16, 2009
at 6:00 p.m.

A special feature at the banquet will be music by the popular and talented Voetberg Family from Centralia, Washington.

If you live in the Central Washington area, we encourage you to attend and you are welcome to bring guests who would enjoy learning more about the Camp. While there is no charge to attend, reservations are required. To RSVP, simply call the receptionist at Warm Beach Camp or make your reservations by email.

Join us as we look to the future of Warm Beach Camp and embrace the vision for ministry that God is laying out before us.

Creating Beauty

I love to garden. Shrubs, flowers, trees – I love the shapes and colors, the textures and fragrances of each one and how they come together to make surprising and unexpected beauty. Being in my garden feeds my soul. But gardens need care – weeding, pruning, dividing, and transplanting occur frequently. It’s part of the deal – part of the joy – at least most of the time. When it comes to pruning and moving and removing, I am often ...

The Generosity and Understanding of Jesus

There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. -Hebrews 4:16 NLT Take time to listen to these words. Read, speak and own them. These words are for you and me. So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us ...

Blessings Big and Small

To see Warm Beach Camp empty at a time of year when it would normally be flooded with guests and campers is an odd sight. The past four months at the Camp have been challenging to say the least. Camp staff have made drastic adjustments at work to adapt to government requirements and the lack of revenue the Camp is experiencing. But, in all of this we have seen God’s blessing and provision every day. The blessings come in big ...
