Say Yes to Volunteer Opportunities for Special Needs Camps

by Laurie Fertello

Special Friends Day Camp - volunteer opportunitiesI wish you could have been there when I had the opportunity recently, to tell two Mothers that their adult sons could come to Special Friends Day Camp!  You would have seen the longing on their faces turn to joy and the tears in their eyes when they finally realized a dream come true for their adult children!

Saying “YES” to people who are so often told “NO”, is a great privilege of mine and I do wish you could be there when these moments of joy and hope rush in!

Would you and your friends, family or youth group join Warm Beach Camp this summer in the ministry to adults with special needs?  For every camper registered, we need one volunteer counselor who becomes a “Buddy” for the week of camp.  You’ll never know such joy in service!

I’m inviting you to consider making Special Friends Day Camp your short–term missions experience this summer.  The cost is minimal, just $30.00 per week and the opportunity “to experience their world” is right here at home!

The need for volunteers will be great this summer as campers are already registering!  Please consider helping Warm Beach Camp by volunteering at one (or all) of our three Special Friends Day Camps: June 29 – July 2, 2010, July 5-8, 2010, and August 23-26, 2010.  After you do, you’ll be the ones telling the ministry stories and saying I WISH YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THERE!

For more information on how to register yourself or your group, please email Laurie Fertello at lfertello@warmbeach.com or phone 425-239-9841.

Ultimate Love

“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/jhn.15.13.NLT A time tested favorite game on the front lawn of Cedar Lodge is Ultimate Frisbee.  The name speaks for itself.  Two teams. Each has a clear goal where points are scored.  Offense and defense are involved.  Play with 10 people or 100 people, it doesn’t matter.  There is no better form of Frisbee with a group of people. We all have ideas ...

Do Right, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

“No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what He requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/mic.6.8.NLT There’s a real challenge going on in the world.  It appears at many levels that we are losing interest in God. I see it in campers who are coming to Warm Beach Camp. Many have no knowledge of God, the Bible, and ...

God Is My Example

“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/eph.5.1-2.NLT I have had the privilege of watching generations of families come through Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center. Each generation seeks to be unique, and yet, often times I see the example of the previous generation ...
