Oasis Family Camp 2021 – What You Need to Know

I am so excited Warm Beach Camp is able to offer Oasis Family Camp this year!

It will be Wednesday, July 28-Sunday, Aug. 1 and it’s going to have a new look and feel this year. The focus is on connecting and having fun together as a family.

Your family can connect with God through worship, devotions, hospitality, fellowship, and creation, and with each other through fun activities and time spent together!

Due to COVID related restrictions, we will not be offering any age specific programming or indoor sessions. Instead, we are offering lots of fun outdoor optional family choice activities. This will allow you to create a personalized experience that fits your family.

Each evening everyone will gather, socially distanced by family groups, at the amphitheater overlooking beautiful Port Susan Bay for live worship with Eric Henderson and devotions from Ed McDowell. This time will also feature some fun activities and giveaways! Kids who need space or get fidgety can play on the spacious, grassy hillside above the amphitheater with parent supervision, and you will be able to listen and participate from there while allowing your kiddos to run and play.

The mornings and afternoons are open for you to choose the activities your family will enjoy most. Each day will have a couple of unique options as well as many of the family camp classics.

This summer, rec options are limited, but there will still be pool, canoes, BB guns & archery, mini-golf, and crafts available. Of course, the sport courts are always available for tennis, pickle ball, basketball, and more. Other activity options include; the disc golf coarse, our lovely hiking trails, and lots of room for bikes.

In the mornings there will be a toddler time play area on Cedar Lodge lawn as well as a fun and interactive family show with Cowboy Buck & Elizabeth. You may have seen these two perform with some of their friends at The Lights of Christmas. They spread fun and faith through folk music, stories, and ventriloquism.

Each afternoon there will be water play, games, and other activities as well as daily special events such as the bike parade, scavenger hunt, volleyball and softball games, and some other surprises! This is also a great time to get off grounds and go to one of the local lakes or beaches, or to take a drive across Fir Island for a giant ice cream cone.

Meals will follow current COVID guidelines similar to what you see in Snohomish County restaurants. We’ll have reduced capacity in the dining room with additional seating on the deck and at picnic tables under a large open sided tent outside Cedar Lodge. Later evening activities include family swims, campfires, special youth activities, and an outdoor movie. Every camper is going to receive a camp backpack instead of a T-shirt this year.

Online registration is open and details are available on the website here: https://www.warmbeach.com/camps/family-programs/family-camp/

We are going to have fun, make memories and encounter God together! I am so looking forward to hanging out with you all this summer!

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 ...
