The Benefit Auction sends a bunch of kids to camp!

Auction_2012_300The Camp’s annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction, held on Saturday, August 25, raised $63,000 for the Kids 2 Camp Scholarship fund! This will make it possible for a lot of kids to go to camp who would not be able to without all of the generous donors and participants at this event!

By the end of this year, nearly $138,500 will have been given out in scholarships, helping bring more than 1500 campers to WBC. We are committed to turning no child away from camp if the reason they can’t attend is financial. But, it requires funds for scholarships to make this possible. Each year, many people help provide the financial resources so this can happen.

We are extremely grateful to each of our auction donors who gave items to be placed in the auctions. We also want to thank all of the very generous bidders who came to the event and bought all those items.

Special thanks go to the people who pledged a total of $20,000 if we could match that amount in gifts for the Kids 2 Camp program as part of the auction. These donors are Vital-Soft of Stanwood and owner John Overton, Eileen Voth, Nick and Liesl Gelotte, Don and Gayle Andrews, Lakeville Homes of Bellevue, and two anonymous donors.

It was amazing to see several donors who were unable to attend send in their gifts to help meet the match, and when we fell short at the event, several more came through in the days after the auction until we had met the entire $20,000 match, resulting in a total of $40,000 for Kids 2 Camp!

More than the money raised, the success of this event is measured in the changed lives of the kids who will get to go to camp. Mark your calendar now for the fourteenth annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction on Saturday, August 24, 2013.

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
