Life changes here…

Promises matter. Keeping promises builds trust and encourages transformation. There is a profound erosion of trust in U.S. culture today where words and commitments are dismissed under clever justification.

Warm Beach Camp is clear on the promises it makes and keeps. Warm Beach Camp:

  • Provides Christ-centered hospitality and programming.
  • Introduces campers to Christ, helping them grow in Christian living, and preparing them for worldwide Christian service.
  • Reaches out to members of society who are often overlooked and marginalized by bringing them to a camp or retreat.
  • Provides individuals and camper groups with opportunities for rest and renewal in a setting that reveals the grandeur of God.
  • Encourages the Body of Christ.
  • Produces positive societal change both locally and globally through programs, hospitality, and global initiatives.

Keeping these promises is why life changes here.
