Love for horses, passion for nursing

By Bev McDowell, Nurse Program On-Site Coordinator

Love-for-horses-passion-for-nursing-at-Warm-Beach-CampNurses Tressa Brown, LPN, and Destiny Fittis, RN, share a common passion for horses. Growing up, both were involved in the Warm Beach Camp horsemanship program as campers, Wranglers-In-Training and Wranglers. Tressa went on to work as a head wrangler and then led the horsemanship program for two years.

Recently, Destiny and Tressa reconnected through the horsemanship program where they are “doing what they love and loving what they do” at Warm Beach as they blend their love of horses and their passion for nursing. They spend time each week schooling horses, assisting with riding lessons and taking out trail rides. Together, they recently hosted a tack sale to benefit the horsemanship program.

This summer, Tressa will be the nurse for the horsemanship camps while she and Destiny will share the nursing role for High School Leadership Camp.
We are inspired and blessed by the passion these two amazing nurses share and their commitment to excellence in both the nursing and horsemanship programs at Warm Beach Camp.

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 ...
