Serving Military Families
Everyday life for military members and their families can be filled with a level of uncertainty and displacement. The stress on these families is unique and underscores the need for a safe place to find refuge, rest, and renewal.
Black Diamond Camp has consistently hosted military groups since December 2018. Not only have they made it a point to welcome military families from all over the region, but they have formed a specific partnership with a program called Strong Bonds.
Strong Bonds is a unit-based, chaplain-led program assisting commanders in building individual resiliency by strengthening the Army Family. Their retreats provide a fun, safe, and secure environment in which to address the impact of relocations, deployments, and military lifestyle stressors.
The experience military families have at Black Diamond Camp is different than other locations. Here is what one guest shared: “The level of the love, care, and concern of the staff is evident in everything they do because of their desire to serve. That plays out in their love for the military. That has been very evident.” By the end of the weekend, families are relaxed, connected, and most importantly, the kids don’t want to leave. Opportunities to disconnect from the stress of the world and strengthen family and community bonds are what Camp is all about.
It is an honor to serve those who serve our country. Warm Beach Camp Ministries is looking forward to continuing to bless our military guests through refuge, rest, and renewal at all three of our campuses.
