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!

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 ...
