High School leadership training is for life | Giveaway

High School leadership trainingHave you noticed that life is not getting any easier? Life’s questions are not getting less complicated and if you are in High School, life can be especially confusing and hard. Preparing for a life of leadership responsibility and effectiveness requires not just education, but training and mentorship.

For years, Warm Beach Camp has been providing quality training to its High School leaders that participate in the Counselor In Training (CIT), Wrangler In Training (WIT), and Facilitator In Training (FIT) programs. Last year Warm Beach Camp saw the need to add another layer of training and mentorship to these great programs in the form of High School Leadership Camp. This one week camp takes place prior to participants heading off to their respective, program specific, training. It seeks to provide mentorship and training in areas of leadership in a more generalized format that can be applied to everyday life, as well as develop individual talents, create a sense of community, all in a fun environment.

Last year, Warm Beach Camp hosted its very first High School Leadership Camp for 25 participants from a wide variety of backgrounds. Participants enjoyed a camping trip to Baker Lake, where they hiked the rain forest, canoed, and enjoyed the views of majestic waterfalls. Warm Beach Camp Program Intern Mory Browning said, “Being able to get out and enjoy Mt. Baker for a few days was great.” But the best part of the week, said Matt Lambert, Director of Youth and Outdoor Ministry, was “seeing how far the kids got in their vulnerability in one week. Not only that, but how seriously they came to take what they believed about themselves and God.”

Warm Beach Camp will again be hosting High School Leadership Camp June 22-28. This program is available to all high school students whether or not they are continuing on in one of the summer leadership programs: CIT, WIT, or FIT.

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 ...
