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!
