“I Received a Scholarship”

Warm Beach Horsemanship offers Equestrian Vaulting instruction through camps, classes, and even a competitive club team. Equestrian Vaulting is essentially gymnastics and dance on a moving horse. Many who participate in vaulting instruction are horse enthusiasts but have never tried the sport. As you can imagine the first time sitting on a horse with no saddle and being asked to let go and stretch your arms to the side can be rather unnerving.

Ginger Reitz, Assistant Horsemanship Director, describes the experience like this “You will come up against the boundaries of yourself in every way: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It forces you to be authentic.” It’s moments like this when Ginger encourages her students to pray. Before the lesson starts the campers, sometime reluctantly, pray before getting on the horse.  When the lesson is over, Ginger then asks the campers what they are grateful for.  Answers usually range from, “the horses,” to, “all the activities.”

This summer one camper’s reply stood out to Ginger. At the end of a lesson a boy slowly raised his hand and said, “I am grateful that I received a scholarship so I could come and be a part of this camp.”

Camp fosters a sense of gratitude, perseverance, and positivity like no other environment can. It sends youth back out into their everyday lives with hope that not only can they do great things, but that a great God loves them.

Last year 1,600 campers were able to attend a program of Warm Beach Camp because of generous donations to the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship fund. Thank you for contributing to the life of this camper through Kids 2 Camp. You are showing campers the love of Christ every day.

Volunteers Are Integral to the Horsemanship Ministry

Imagine you are standing next to a horse, physically vulnerable, and mentally terrified. How will you get on? How will you get off? How will you sit in that saddle way off the ground? How will you go, stop, and most importantly, steer? With your mind racing and your body doubtful of this situation, you turn to the volunteer who is smiling at you and say, “Could you please help me?” The Warm Beach Horsemanship program is unique: we provide ...

Gone Forever

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4 NLT The Apostle John is writing down the vision from God about a time when everything is made new by God. God is back among us: I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will ...
