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.

Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
