How Volunteers Make Mission Possible
“Chaos” would be the word to describe my household when my husband has to go out of town for a week. All of a sudden the stack of dishes looks bigger, the children are screaming louder, and my nine year old has more homework than ever. When my husband is out of town my moto is, “lower your expectations.” There is just too much to get done, so I settle for safe and fed. When my husband returns home, we hit our stride and the state of chaos subsides.
In the day-to-day operation of Warm Beach Camp, there are thousands of tasks to be accomplished that contribute to a fantastic guest experience. It’s the volunteers who come alongside the staff to make our mission possible. Volunteers make the mini-golf course look bright and inviting, help improve and maintain the grounds, and work on paint projects for summer camp and The Lights of Christmas Festival, and much more. Volunteers allow Camp to make sure guests are not just safe and fed, but they also leave cared for and loved. This is the heart of Christ.
