. . . on the results of summer camps confirmed many of our assumptions.

In this study conducted by the American Camp Association, researchers found that summer camps increase self-esteem and confidence. Consider the following statement:
 
“Self-esteem does not come from empty praise, but from feeling competent; from having success experiences; from making genuine contributions. Camps are uniquely suited to provide these opportunities to young people.”
 
What about 6 months later?
In this same study the American Camp Association followed up with the parents 6 months later and found…
 
More than 96% of parents agreed with the statement, “The people at camp helped my child feel good about him/herself and 92% of campers agreed that people at camp helped them feel good about who they were.”
 
 
For the average child, self-esteem is . . .
. . . crucial to development. But for kids from disadvantaged backgrounds, self-esteem can be truly life-altering.
 
Giving kids the time of their lives can change their futures.

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 ...
