Staff Make All the Difference

The greatest “difference-maker” in a child’s camp experience is the care and competency of the staff. Warm Beach Camp hires the best college-aged summer staff following a rigorous application and interview process. Hiring decisions are prayerfully made after review of an extensive application, four independent references, and a national background check. We are looking for young adults with a passion for the Lord and for sharing God’s love with kids. 

Camp counselors arrive over a week before camp for intensive training. They are trained in basic child development, conflict management, communication skills, group facilitation, safety management, First Aid, and more. Specific care is given to equipping staff members to successfully handle the wide range of behaviors campers exhibit during a week of camp. Staff also learn to effectively share their faith story and how to share God’s Word with campers in both a small group format and as teachable moments throughout the day.

Horsemanship staff invest an additional week in a certification clinic through the Certified Horsemanship Association, a national leader in horsemanship staff training. Recreation staff undergo extensive training in the standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technologies, a leader in course safety and design. The Camp Nurse position is filled with someone trained as a nurse. Medical doctor’s standing orders create the foundation for the nurse’s practice while at Camp.

Camper safety is of paramount concern. Our goal is that each camper experience care and growth spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Behind all of the “fun & games” of summer camp, a sacred trust is given from parents to the Camp. Trust is a gift we steward with the utmost care.

Camp SunSparrow

It is common knowledge that people need interaction with one another.
