Stay and Play With Us!

The eagles are soaring, the horses are grazing, the flowers are blooming. The sunsets have been incredible lately.  Can’t you almost smell the campfires as you think about summer at Warm Beach Camp? 

While we are unable to offer our regular Family Camp program this summer, I am excited to welcome guests back to Camp the week of July 27-Aug 2 for Oasis Family Camp 2020 Stay & Play. This is our one-time alternative format to address the need for social distancing. It is a chance for you to get away, relax and play together as a family. The plan is for families to come Monday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Sunday, or make it a full week. Stay in your RV, a tent, or one of our guest rooms. Invite your friends and extended family.    

Guests will be assigned to a cohort or group of households that will eat meals, enjoy campfires and have opportunities to participate in a variety of recreational activities together.   

We will not be offering age specific programming and there will be no large group sessions or speakers. We are, however, planning daily devotions and you will get to fill your days at Camp with the activities that best suit your family. We are planning for the pool to be open, opportunities to experience the climbing tower and high ropes course, archery tag, canoeing, mini golf, and more.* 

We have volleyball courts, tennis/basketball courts, disc golf, sports fields, and lots of hiking trails for you to enjoy with your family. Please bring your own balls, games, and other sports equipment. In the surrounding communities there are lakes for swimming, boating and fishing, as well as places to get local ice cream and other treats. 

It has been a quiet spring around here, but summer looks to be the time to begin gathering again. I’m looking forward to seeing you all back at Camp in a few weeks.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
