Project Updates – June 2010

BuildingFencesWe have several projects currently underway at the Camp:

  • We are working on a fencing set-back project at the stables to keep our herd away from the streams and help protect the environment. This work is partially funded by the Snohomish Conservation District.
  • Now that the Wastewater Treatment Plant is processing the effluent to a reuse standard, we will be able to use the water for irrigation in the pastures during the warmer months of the year. Irrigation equipment has been ordered and we should be able to irrigate this summer and not discharge anything into the Port Susan Bay.

Upcoming projects in the next few months include:

  • Because of a chronic problem in one of the Camp’s waterlines, we will be working on a waterline repair project this summer to improve the problem. More work will be required in the future, but funds are not available to replace the section of line at this time.
  • There will be several painting, roofing, and construction projects underway this summer on Camp buildings. If you would like to volunteer to help with any of these, please contact Jessica in our volunteer office.

With the support of the surrounding community, the Camp is now ready to make the final push to get our Conditional Use Permit application approved by the County. This permit is needed before we can begin the Cedar Lodge renovation projects, and will affect all future development of the Camp for the next 30 years. Please pray that the Lord will go before us in getting this permit approved.

This is God’s Place

God chose Warm Beach Camp to be the home of The Lights of Christmas! He chose the people to start this amazing experience to share the true message of Christmas. He fills the staff with His love and joy so that it pours out of us to the community to soften hearts and bring change. The world is a dark place, and the last couple of years have been difficult! But no matter what, when you drive through The Lights ...

Horses: Life Impact

If you have ever felt a horse’s warm breath on your skin or breathed in their scent as you hugged their neck while laying your head on their side, you will know that horses have a way of reaching deep into your soul. They bringing comfort to places in your heart that may be buried under layers of grief, bitterness, rejection, fear, or hurt. Our goal at Warm Beach Horsemanship is to provide as many opportunities as possible for people ...
