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.

Gratitude

People have been supporting the ministry with a level of generosity that is so encouraging through this time. Thank you!  The Lights of Christmas: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” in 2020. It has brought encouragement to so many. It is quite likely that more people have come this year than ever before. Wow! It has brought provision to Warm Beach Camp ...

The Hope That Christmas Brings

Despite the COVID pandemic The Lights of Christmas presents: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” is shaping up to be one of the most successful Christmas seasons Warm Beach Camp has ever seen. Tickets are selling out, donuts are flying off the shelves, and the retail tent is running to keep up with the demand. One Saturday night a volunteer named Ron was helping a guest at the end of the event. A man in his 60s pulled in and began asking Ron ...

Horses Bring Hope

Warm Beach Horsemanship is one of the few programs at Camp that can follow CDC guidelines and remain open, providing a place of hope and healing during these challenging times. Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 many people’s lives have been thrown into turmoil. Things we once took for granted have been stripped away from us, however amidst this turmoil there is HOPE…    Those missing physical touch can wrap their arms around a horse and feel the comfort that comes from an embrace. Words cannot express the joy and healing ...
