The Cedar Lodge Renovation

What an exciting moment when, on the last day of 2009, the final pledge was received to complete the funding for the first three phases of the Cedar Lodge renovation. This date was significant in that it meant we had met the last requirement to claim a grant from a foundation for $490,000 for this project. This project includes moving the public restrooms to the main floor of Cedar Lodge, and expanding the kitchen and Cedar Lodge Chapel. The first ...

Camp reaches goal for Cedar Lodge grant

Faced with a looming deadline, it was down to the wire when the last pledge came in on December 31, 2009 to reach the goal and complete the funding for the first three phases on renovation work to be done on Cedar Lodge. This has allowed the Camp to submit the paperwork to claim the $490,000 completion grant from the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust. We praise God for His faithfulness, and we are very grateful for all of the ...

Update on funding for Cedar Lodge

WBC has been awarded a $490,000 completion grant for this effort. To claim this grant, we need to have the rest of the funding identified through cash, pledges and gifts in kind. We have been asking the WBC community to make a special commitment to underwrite the remaining funding, to be paid over the next four years. We need all commitments identified by early December to claim the completion grant. We have gone from needing $590,000 down to $38,000 to ...

Cedar Lodge: A call for action in 2009

Cedar Lodge is crucial to the delivery of WBC’s mission. It is the “nerve center” of WBC. These first three phases of remodeling address the most important issues that need to be met to serve people effectively in the years ahead. Restroom Additions: Restrooms are needed on the main floor of Cedar Lodge. In 2010, WBC is offering its first overnight camp for people with special needs. In addition, WBC is providing camps and retreats for people with terminal diseases, ...

Volunteer Center

The Volunteer Center is receiving much needed restrooms and laundry that will enable WBC to better support the volunteers that give so much to the ministry of the Camp. There is also a new deck added to the front of the restrooms & laundry that creates a welcoming community atmosphere. This project will be completed during the summer of 2008.

Mini Lodge & Mountain Cabin Upgrade

Work began in 2006 and we are almost finished! The cabins & minilodges received new roofs, paint, and windows. Mt. Cabins 1-3 have a connecting deck and new archways also grace the entry points of the whole village. The Mt. Cabins received new bunks & mattresses and new door locks. The final pieces of this project are to add porch entryways to cabins 7-9 and possibly new carpet in the lobbies of the minilodges. These facilities serve thousands of guests ...

Cedar Lodge Phases 1-3

These phases include new restrooms upstairs, remodeled and expanded Cedar Lodge Chapel, and a new and expanded kitchen downstairs. Funding is still being pursued and work is projected to commence in 2010. Guests are eagerly anticipating these new upgrades that will allow us to better serve the increasing numbers of guests at Warm Beach Camp.

Warm Beach Vaulters

Equestrian Vaulting is taking off at Warm Beach Camp. Since 2006, the program has developed into weekly lessons for over 40 kids as well as three competition teams. The team competes and performs exhibitions all over the Pacific Northwest and has finished well in the National Vaulting Championships held in Denver Colorado 2007. In support of the Vaulting program, we have finished construction on a small practice gym and purchased a third horse and vaulting surcingle. The next steps are ...

W-Bar-B Horsemanship

In addition to the Vaulting Program, work was completed to expand the parking and finish the snackshop. Twenty-four temporary indoor box stalls were erected over the winter to enable better care of the horses and reduced mud build-up in the winter pasture. Plans are being made to add draft horse stalls to the back of the indoor arena, build restrooms, expand the facility for a stock farm program, add false fronts on the buildings and landscape around Crum Pond. The ...

Palmer House, Volunteer Cottage

In addition to the Volunteer Center for meeting and laundry, we are in desparate need of housing for summer volunteers. Volunteer Camp Pastors and Nurses are needed every week to support the summer youth camps. Additionally, we turn away seasonal volunteers who need lodging. A lease lot cabin previously owned by the Palmer family is being upgraded to support volunteer lodging needs. Keep your eyes out for the Palmer House to be on-line the Summer of 2008.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Upgrade

During the Summer of 2007, we launched a project to raise the quality of treated wastewater outfall to a "Re-Use" standard for reintroduction into the environment. This critical project allows us to exceed Dept. of Ecology standards for wastewater treatment plant discharge and will relocate the discharge point from a small stream to directly into Port Susan Bay. Thus, the "re-use" water will more rapidly dilute into the saltwater even further away from any housing. Re-use water can also be ...

Mini-Golf Renovation

A new 9-hole minature golf course was installed last year along with a new golf shack that offers snacks & drinks as well as golf equipment. This spring and summer we will be including additional patio seating and other finishing touches.
