The Auction is Moving!

I don’t know about you, but I have missed being together for the annual auction. If you have joined us in the past, you will remember the fun of quietly (or not so quietly) outbidding someone for a certain item, or the friendly competition for a delicious-looking cake or pie. 

Over the last two years, as we navigated the pandemic, we have been grateful for the opportunity to move the auction online. We found new opportunities and a way to still make it possible for kids to come to Camp.  

But it’s time to gather again! 

We are so excited to announce the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction will be in person this year AND will coincide with Family Camp! 

In 2022 we are planning a one-day, in-person event on Saturday, July 30, 11:00am – 4:00pm. Everyone is invited to participate in the Family Fun Day activities as well as to enjoy the silent auction, vie for raffle items large and small, and just generally have a good time. The day will culminate in a return to an in-person Live Auction. 

This year will have a new look and feel, but the goal is the same – to gather together, have a great time, and make it possible for kids and families to come to Camp through our generosity. 

Watch for more details. I hope you will come!

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 ...
