Introducing the New Director for The Lights of Christmas

Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center, home of The Lights of Christmas, is excited to announce Kayla Castiglione as the new Director of The Lights of Christmas. The leadership team believes in Kayla and her vision for the future of the event.

Kayla grew up volunteering at The Lights of Christmas with her mom and recalls the many memories of building lifelong relationships through the event. She later interned and became the Project Coordinator for the event shortly after her internship.

Then, she transitioned into the role of Retail Manager where she coordinated the vendors for the event for many years. If you have attended The Lights of Christmas, you have probably seen her running from vendor to vendor making sure customers and vendors get the best experience with shopping and food.

Kayla has a heart for others and deeply cares about the greater community.  Her vision moving forward is to strengthen community relationships and add new fun and creative displays that honor  the history of the event and share the Christmas story.

I want The Lights of Christmas to be a place families want to come and make new traditions and memories. A place where people feel the love and joy of the Christmas story and be inspired by that for change in the world.Kayla Castiglione

Join us in celebration as we usher Kayla into this new role here at Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center, home of The Lights of Christmas!

A Summer of Breakthroughs

Over the past several weeks of Camp ministry, many Campers have made decisions for Christ through Warm Beach Camp Ministries. In just one week of Horsemanship Camp, nine out of 12 Campers made commitments to Christ. At Black Diamond, more than 20 kids made first-time decisions at Day Camp and Group Camps in one week.    Somehow the pandemic has created an environment at Camp, unlike any other year. For lots of kids, it’s the best week they’ve had in two years. Andrew ...
