Friends, Faith and Fun at High School Leadership Camp

Warm Beach High School Leadership CampOver 35 high school youth and leaders came together for Warm Beach Camp’s second annual High School Leadership Camp this June. The camp was attended by Warm Beach Camp wranglers, facilitators, and counselors-in-training, as well as high school students from near and far.

David Lawless, Outdoor Education Coordinator/Program Assistant, said “It was really important to me that the camp be a time when campers could be themselves, have fun, and connect with each other in meaningful ways.” Camp activities were planned around these ideas, and Lawless added, “Being real with one another was the thing that made everyone feel like they fit in.”

Campers participated in chapel time and team building activities. During chapel time, campers were encouraged to submit questions about God and Christianity in a “question box.”  The summer camp pastor that week, David Linder, answered the campers’ questions at chapel time. Lawless said, “The kids asked amazing questions and they really got into it. They got into it so much that they asked for more chapel time.”

After several days at Warm Beach Camp, the campers went on a three day campout at Cascade Meadows in Leavenworth, Washington. They went on hikes, enjoyed a huge slip-n-slide, Zombie Tag, an outdoor movie, plenty of camp fires, and lots of food. But more than the activities, the campers seemed to enjoy each other. Caroline Kulper, one of the camp counselors, said “The whole week was a high note. It was so great to see the way these kids, who barely knew each other, become fast friends and work together.”

A camp experience impacts lives in amazing ways. Friendships with caring adults and other campers can last a lifetime and provide a connection that helps young people navigate the challenges of life.

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.
