New games bring more fun to Warm Beach Summer Camps

playing nine-square at Warm Beach Summer Youth CampIt all started with Ga-ga Ball. Never heard of it?  Well, it doesn’t have anything to do with the pop music singer Lady Gaga. Instead, it is a fast-paced game very similar to Dodge Ball played in an octagon shaped Ga-ga pit. As you can imagine, this means lots of jumping, running, laughing, and fun in a small area. The kids at last summer’s Warm Beach W-Bar-B Youth Camps were immediate fans of this new game.

This year, two more new games have popped up at W-Bar-B: Nine Square and Human Foosball. Looking at the campers lined up to play, these two games are popular additions to the activities.

Nine Square is like playing schoolyard four square with a volleyball twist. The loud groans and cheers echoing from the Nine Square court are a clear indication the kids really get into the game. Not for the faint of heart, Human Foosball looks quite a bit like a life-sized version of the game. Players have to communicate with each other and move together. If not, one or two may end up on the ground, usually laughing. It doesn’t take long to learn the importance of team work.

With amazing counselors at Warm Beach Summer Youth Camp, the connections and life lessons learned playing games flow right into the week’s Bible lessons. It creates an environment of fun, faith and friendships.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. 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 ...
