Giving God praise and thanks…

“Warm Beach Camp is where my faith in Jesus became real,” said one summer staff, reflecting on her years as a camper and now staff. As various youth camp staff shared how they had grown closer to God this summer, a deep unity and sense of holy purpose came over the group.

The staff shared about relationships, leadership opportunities, and a profound sense that God was living and working through them.

Over the course of the summer, the staff ministered to youth from local churches, students from Japan and South Korea, foster and adoptive kids, and kids who have parents in prison. Warm Beach youth campers come from very diverse backgrounds. They come for the fun and new experiences. They leave with Jesus.

With deep gratitude, we praise God for the 25 youth campers whose faith in Jesus became real for the first time this summer.

Thank you, Jesus, for the incredible group of youth camp staff.

There are few questions you should ask yourself before you dive in head ...

There he was, all 40 or so inches of him, heading up to the stage determined to be the first one to share at open mic time at Camp. This is a time where campers can share about their experiences during the week in front of the entire camp. In our English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, Eric was a good student – bright and very accomplished with his English as a 4th grader. He stepped on stage and ...
