Project Updates – May 2014

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • Work continues in the basement of Cedar Lodge. The new walls are being painted, doors hung, and windows trimmed out. Soon, we will have the electrical and sprinkler systems finished, flooring put down in the offices, and the drop ceiling hung. The main concrete floors have been sanded and sealed with a non-slip clear finish. There has been wonderful volunteer labor support for this project, thus far. The new walk-in cooler and freezer are ordered and we are hoping to have them ready to install in June.
  • A new manure shed to improve our manure management may not seem like a glamorous project, but it is very important! We are hoping to complete the shed this fall if cost sharing funding from the Snohomish Conservation District is approved.
  • Cost estimates are being revised and the planning for horse stalls for vaulting horses is underway. The timing of this project depends upon raising sufficient funds and receiving County permit approval. We would like to have them built before winter, but still have need for more funding.

  • A certified arborist has volunteered for a forestry health project involving the marking and removal of trees in the RV area. As the trees have become older, the density needed to be reduced to provide for stronger, healthier trees. The dead wood that can be a hazard is being removed, and with more sunlight for the understory plants, the forest will become more lush and healthy. The trees taken down will be used for firewood this summer and during The Lights of Christmas.
  • For the W-Bar-B Ranch summer program, the staff and volunteers are constructing space for a modified paint ball course and a human foosball game. Both of these will greatly increase the diversity of fun activities at Camp.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with any projects, whether you have a few hours or a few days, email Jessica Wilson or call her at 360-312-3417.

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 ...
