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.

A Fond Farewell to Margie Keane

After over 20 years of service in the Warm Beach Camp Business Office, Margie Keane is retiring! She first came to Camp in 1986 as Margie Henry, working in Accounts Payable. But after a couple of years, she got a better offer! An offer of marriage, that is, to her husband, Dan Keane. But that was not the end of it! In 2003, several kids and 17 years later, Margie returned to Warm Beach to serve full-time in the Business ...

Everywhere

Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2 There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people. From families to the massive global community, we don’t like division, yet we experience it. We like unity and community. It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere. As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and ...

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
