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.

Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/exo.14.14.NLT  I have come to understand in the human experience there are the “Just before” moments that tend to call into question everything that is about to happen: Just before the wedding, a nervous bride or groom thinks or says “should I really be doing this?” Just before opening or expanding a ministry or business, there can be a wave of ...

The Earth Has Yielded Its Harvest

So be patient, brethren, [as you wait] till the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits expectantly for the precious harvest from the land. [See how] he keeps up his patient [vigil] over it until it receives the early and late rains. James 5:7 The songbirds welcomed a crew of hearty folks to the Warm Beach Horsemanship pastures as preparations were made to bring in a bountiful hay harvest. Volunteers gathered and created a crew of loaders, lifters, ...
