Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction — in a word: WOW!

Auction 2014 Pic 5430Warm Beach Camp’s annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction, held on Saturday, August 23, raised $106,500 for the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship Fund! This makes it possible for a lot of kids to attend camp who would not be able to go without all of the generous donors and participants at this event!

By the end of this year, more than $173,000 will have been given out in scholarships, helping bring more than 1500 campers to attend camp at WBC.

We are extremely grateful to each of our auction donors who gave items for the auctions. We also want to thank all of the very generous bidders who came to the event and bought all those items.

Special thanks go to the people who pledged a total of $40,000 for the matching gift if we could raise that amount for the Kids 2 Camp program as part of the auction. Before the auction even started, nearly $25,000 had already come in to help meet the match challenge from people who were unable to come to the auction!

More than the money raised, the success of this event is measured in the changed lives of the kids who get to attend camp. Mark your calendar now for the sixteenth annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction on Saturday, August 29, 2015.

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 ...
