Getting away as a group for fun and quality time

Mini Golf at Warm Beach Camp Conference CenterGolfing, campfires, heated pool, flag football, and a large RV/tent area make Warm Beach Camp, in North Snohomish County, ideal for 60-100 men from Lynnwood Open Door Baptist Church every year.  Since the mid 1990s, the men have been coming to Warm Beach for a summer weekend of fun while connecting with God and each other. They tried public campgrounds in the past, but discovered you never know who you’d be camping next to. Loud music and alcohol-induced exuberance from a neighboring tent are anything but conducive to fireside testimonies! When the men come to Warm Beach Camp, they know they are in a relaxing, Christian community. At the same time, they have the freedom to be left alone to do their own activities and program.

The men start off their retreat with golf tournaments—a large group head to nearby Kayak Golf Course while another group stays at Camp for a lively round of disc golf. With staggered starts, the competition begins! Of course there must be an award ceremony following the tournaments. And it is a fantastic way to break the ice for those who may not know each other well. Golf games tend to be a theme for many of these men as they also end their retreat with a tournament on the Camp’s miniature golf course. This past year the Open Door Baptist Church men decided they liked the camp-out so much, they started another annual event for fathers and sons at Warm Beach.

Just like many other churches, Open Door Baptist finds their calendar very full with community outreach and church events. Combined with tight budgets, they considered cutting out their retreat. Instead, they understand the value of getting away from church for some quality bonding time. With the at home feel of Warm Beach, they appreciate their time here.  Warm Beach Camp whole-heartedly appreciates the Open Door Baptist Church men!

Disabilities Program - Serving Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Camp SunSparrow

It is common knowledge that people need interaction with one another. To take that fact a step further, community and belonging are critical to the health and well-being of each and every person on planet Earth. It is a lesser-known fact that people with intellectual or developmental disabilities don’t have the same access to community as most populations.
