Mailroom volunteers are manning a nerve-center

Mailing-Volunteers“I started out working in the mailroom” typifies a common perception of the mailroom clerk being an entry-level job. At Warm Beach Camp, the mailroom is a nerve-center for the organization, handling all the daily incoming and outgoing mail. That can be a couple hundred of pieces in each direction!

In the summer, the volume explodes with mail coming in for the 45 or so summer staffers and even more mail for the kids attending camp. It all has to be sorted and delivered to the right location.

And, it is almost all done by two volunteers! George Leasor and Dawn Morton are two mailroom heroes who have taken on this task. Sorting and processing the mail isn’t a very glamorous job. It is done behind the scenes — some of our own staff are not even aware of who sorts their daily mail — and provides the Camp with a huge savings in labor costs!

Besides these two, there is also a small army of other volunteers who help the Camp process outgoing bulk mailings. A few phone calls bring in a group of people who stuff envelopes, attach mailing labels, and get the letters or brochures into mailing trays. Thousands of pieces of mail are handled each year by these volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering at Warm Beach Camp, there are all kinds of opportunities for you here. Let us know what you are interested in, and we will find the perfect job you!

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. 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 ...
