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!

It is daily. It is beyond what we could see or ...

Grateful for Our Faithful Volunteers

I have worked at Warm Beach Camp for many years. Only recently did I begin working with volunteers in a broader context while serving as the Interim Volunteer Coordinator. What an encouragement to all the staff to see how faithfully the volunteers want to serve. Several volunteers help us for many hours each week. So much of what they do is critical to the ministry. During The Lights of Christmas, we have volunteers that fall into the age category of “the golden years” ...

God’s Enduring Love

As we transition from 2021 to 2022 there is a profound truth that has become our focus for 2022:  God’s Enduring Love. We just finished the 24th season of The Lights of Christmas, the 2nd year of a drive-thru format. We shared and experienced God’s enduring love. The story of Jesus coming to save us, God coming to be with us, was clearly evident through, and word. We are grateful for all those who chose to take this in. As we look ...
