The Perfect Weekend Away!

By Sarah Eschbach, Marketing Associate

Hmmm … the perfect weekend away. What does that look like? Perhaps a quiet, serene setting where you can think, read, or pray, free from the distractions of home. Or perhaps it would involve a bit of pampering, delicious food, and fellowship with other women. Or maybe just a few days of no dishes, no cooking, and not one single load of laundry!

Well, if any of these images helps you define your perfect weekend away, Women’s Retreat at Warm Beach Camp is for you! All the planning and preparation is done, and your only job is to come and create your perfect weekend away!

The Women’s Retreats offer the ideal opportunity for women to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of home life and take time to relax. In addition to an abundance of free time, a variety of recreation opportunities are available during the weekend, including horseback trail rides, high ropes course, climbing tower, nature trails, chair massages, and paraffin wax and hand massages. Seminars covering a variety of topics including missions, boundaries, parenting, special needs, and spiritual markers add richness to your time away.

This year, Warm Beach Camp is pleased to host former Women of Faith conference speaker, Thelma Wells. Overcoming a childhood of abuse and poverty, Thelma has become an incredibly successful, confident, and powerful author, speaker, and ministry leader. A trailblazer for women, Thelma organized her own speaking company, received a master’s degree and honorary doctorate, and became a well-known author and speaker on the Women of Faith tour. Thelma specializes in the art of motivating, inspiring, and equipping women to “be their best.”

In addition to the fun activities and experiences offered at WBC’s Women’s Retreats, these weekends are sure to be filled with relaxation, reflection, and inspiration to discover the role God has for you back at home.

Plan now to attend one of these perfect weekends away. Choose the weekend that fits your schedule: April 24-26 or May 1-3. Bring a friend or several friends and enjoy a weekend together. Call the Camp’s Registration Department to reserve your place, or register on-line at the Camp’s website.

After all, this weekend is perfect for you!

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle.

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…."
