Update on Projects – November 2012

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

  • EntranceSign2_300This fall has been a busy time for projects around the grounds. The most visible project is the new entrance signs. These beautiful signs that now border the Camp’s main entrance were a gift from the Kanehen family in loving memory of wife and mother, Elizabeth Kanehen.
  • The landscaping and exterior painting on the new restroom addition in Cedar Lodge has been completed. Camp guests are really appreciating these beautiful new restrooms!
  • Work is nearing completion on much-needed expanded parking for The Lights of Christmas. Besides this, decorating work is going on all over the grounds in preparation for The Lights which open on Thursday, November 29.
  • Signage marking the Native Growth Protection Areas (NGPA) on the grounds continues to be installed, identifying the buffer areas that need to be preserved. Another part of this project will take place in the spring when invasive plants will be removed, and native vegetation will be planted in two border areas.
  • Repairs have been completed on the road that provides access to the dike and the Wastewater Treatment Plant. This road partially washed out last winter. Also competed are drainage improvements on the playfield at W-Bar-B Ranch.
  • Some projects in the planning stages include: construction of a new manure containment facility at the Stables and improved drainage in the horse corrals; building a new announcer’s stand next to the grandstands; replacement of the server on the Camp’s computer system; installation of underground sprinklers and moving the overhead electrical wires underground in Cedar Lodge front lawn; and repairing the weather damage in the decks at the Mount Baker cabins.

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

This is God’s Place

God chose Warm Beach Camp to be the home of The Lights of Christmas! He chose the people to start this amazing experience to share the true message of Christmas. He fills the staff with His love and joy so that it pours out of us to the community to soften hearts and bring change. The world is a dark place, and the last couple of years have been difficult! But no matter what, when you drive through The Lights ...

Horses: Life Impact

If you have ever felt a horse’s warm breath on your skin or breathed in their scent as you hugged their neck while laying your head on their side, you will know that horses have a way of reaching deep into your soul. They bringing comfort to places in your heart that may be buried under layers of grief, bitterness, rejection, fear, or hurt. Our goal at Warm Beach Horsemanship is to provide as many opportunities as possible for people ...
