Update on Projects – May 2013

Here is the latest news on the Camp projects currently underway:

  • CL RRWork 300The old restrooms in Lower Cedar Lodge have been dismantled in preparation for the renovation work to come. Throughout the year, we will be moving offices and storage areas around to free up the space to install a larger walk-in cooler and freezer. The space currently occupied by the freezer and cooler will eventually become additional work space and storage for the kitchen. This will vastly improve the productivity of the kitchen.
  • The projects on the lawn between Cedar Lodge and Cascadian have been completed! The overhead electrical lines that ran above the lawn have been moved underground, and an underground sprinkler system has been installed. Grass has been planted and should be green by summer! Together, these projects improve the safety, aesthetics, and functionality of this area of the grounds. Our sincere thanks goes to the family who provided the funding to make this project possible.
  • The native growth buffer along the property line between the pools and the Senior Community has been planted, and work along the property line above Bayview Ranch House is underway. Invasive plant growth is being removed (blackberries and ivy), and a new native plant buffer and fencing are being installed. These projects are part of the requirements of our Conditional Use Permit.
  • The conversion of Chinook Village into the new home for the Special Friends Camps continues. Modifications to the restrooms are underway to accommodate wheelchairs and meet A.D.A. requirements. A medical room is being set up and equipped to allow for care of the special needs campers. Volunteers from several senior volunteer organizations are coming this month to help with the construction of a new fire circle with seating that will better accommodate those with mobility challenges. These improvements will be completed in time for the first Special Friends camp this summer.
  • Some current projects include: painting the interior of Cascadian Lodge (finished), replacing the server for the Camp’s computer system (installed), power-washing and cleaning as many of our buildings, roofs, and other areas as possible (lots of progress on this with the help of some staff and wonderful volunteers), and the sprinkler system in the ball field is being repaired and both fields are being leveled for safer play.
  • This summer, Cascadian Lodge will be getting a new roof to repair some leaks and preserve the building. In our climate, roofs always seem to be an issue! 

If you would be interested in volunteering to help with any projects, whether you have a few hours or a few days, contact Jessica Wilson at the Camp or by email at jwilson@warmbeach.com.

Warm Beach Camp Ministries Project Updates

Warm Beach Camp Ministries stewards three camps with over 150 buildings, miles of roads and sidewalks, three swimming pools, three commercial kitchens, and more.

The Glitter Gals

The Lights of Christmas Outdoor Artistic Designer, Laurie Fertello, gave the July 2022 SOWER ladies the name “The Glitter Gals.” SOWERS (Servants On Wheels Ever Ready) come as couples in their RVs to work for three weeks at a time before moving on to serve at another Christian organization. This year we had SOWERS in June, July, August, and September. During the summer, SOWER ladies usually work in, or outside, the paint shop with Laurie. The July ladies were tasked ...

Discovery – Exploring New Possibilities

Warm Beach Camp Ministries is stepping into the new year with a conviction that over the next 5 years, we will connect 1 million people with Jesus by partnering with leaders to provide transformational experiences. This is going to take some serious discovery and exploration.  We know God is leading us in this. With ministry spread across the three camps, we hope to work with 500 leaders this year to provide opportunities for more than 100,000 people to connect with ...
