Meet Ginger Reitz

Ginger Photo 450pxGinger joined the Warm Beach Camp staff in the fall of 2017 as the Assistant Director of Horsemanship. Ginger brings a passion for ministry to people who are hurting – physically and emotionally – through and with horses.

Ginger carries a life-long love of horses expressed through an extensive career in horsemanship training, competition, riding instruction, and managing her own horse farm in the Maple Valley area.  She and her daughters became involved in vaulting and were introduced to the Warm Beach Vaulters at regional competitions. As she watched the Warm Beach teammates accept, encourage, and pray with each other and other vaulters, a seed was planted in her heart. The seed began to grow as she witnessed the hand of God in a young, deeply hurting vaulter’s life. This young vaulter experienced healing specifically through the love of the staff and by helping another vaulter in need through the Adaptive (Special Needs) Vaulting Program at Warm Beach Camp.

Ginger believes that horses, especially combined with the ministry of the Holy Spirit, have a unique place in physical and emotional healing for people. This fueled her desire to provide a context for others to experience this healing, and a business plan was formed for Therapeutic Vaulting and Horse Assisted Learning programs.

At the same time, God was moving Warm Beach Camp to seek avenues of expanding the use of horses in therapeutic ways. The Assistant Horsemanship Director job opening at Warm Beach Camp coincided with Ginger’s determination that God was calling her to this work. And the rest, as they say, is history!

We are excited to have Ginger as part of the staff family at Warm Beach Camp, along with her husband, Bob, and daughters, Stella and Anna. Ginger’s unique perspective and gifts will certainly be a blessing to many, and we look forward to what God is going to do through these new programs. If you get a chance, introduce yourself and listen to her story. You will be glad you did!

The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization.
