Partnerships at Rainier Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries aims to reach one million people from 2023-2027 by partnering with leaders and providing transformational experiences. Rainier Camp & Retreat Center is doing just that!

Nestled in the idyllic setting of the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Rainier Camp & Retreat Center operates as a gateway to adventurous activities while providing Christ-centered hospitality to groups in God’s wild creation. Rainier Camp & Retreat Center is partnering with two key groups: Crystal Mountain and Peak 7 Adventures. This picturesque facility provides impactful experiences for these two groups and the guests they serve.

The partnership with Crystal Mountain is a year-long connection. Rainier Camp & Retreat Center offers Crystal Mountain Ski Resort staff housing. During the winter season, 80 individuals live on the grounds, and during summer, there are 25. These staff members are from all corners of the globe. As part of the agreement, Warm Beach Camp Ministries offers intentional experiences to the staff in an apartment life model, all while sharing Jesus’ love. This is a beautiful opportunity to participate in global Kingdom work!

Peak 7 Adventures uses Rainier Camp & Retreat Center as its summer home base, offering outdoor adventure experiences to over 300 at-risk youth. Peak 7 has described Rainier Camp & Retreat Center as a home for their staff and clients in between adventures. For most of the youth that Peak 7 serves, it is their first time experiencing the vast wilderness, and to have a roof over their heads after a long day of being outdoors is a welcome sight! Rainier Camp & Retreat Center is an available space to unwind and be at peace after leaving their comfort zones.

Both strategic partnerships allow people to experience the beauty, rest, and renewal Rainier Camp & Retreat Center offers. This unique place inspires wonder and connection with Christ while venturing into wild possibilities. While there is much left to discover, Warm Beach Camp Ministries is excited to see where God leads in continuing to develop strategic partnerships at Rainier Camp & Retreat Center.

A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat. However, where God is at work, connections can be found in the unlikeliest of places. At mealtimes, the woman and her quilter friends would go to the dining room and share the space with a group of teenagers and their teachers. Through conversation over a delicious meal, it ...
