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.

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 ...
