Volunteer group is also building young lives

BuildingInYouth_250Warm Beach Camp has been blessed this summer by many hard working volunteer groups who have not only left their mark all over Warm Beach Camp, but also touched the lives of the Camp staff. This summer, Building In Youth—an organization affiliated with Hard Hats for Christ—was one of those groups. Their goal is to apply 1 Corinthians 3:9-11 to build spiritual values and character into the lives of young people by teaching them construction skills, and the value of integrity and a strong work ethic.

For two weeks this past June, 29 youth and adults from Building In Youth came to Warm Beach Camp to help with several work projects. They painstakingly pried up every nail that held down approximately 100 feet of decking off of Cedar Lodge Dining Hall so it could be replaced with new deck material. They also put together 10 new picnic tables, replaced boards on 24 old picnic tables, painted three cabins, trimmed shrubs, and scrubbed street signs and fire hydrants.

The 15 boys and girls who came learned new construction skills and important life lessons. Their perseverance in these projects spoke to the hearts of all who saw their hard work, and it built in them an appreciation for what they could accomplish through hard work and a teachable spirit.

The parent organization, Hard Hats for Christ, is a group of Christian construction craftsmen who help spread the gospel of Christ by providing skilled volunteer labor to assist Christian ministries with construction projects. They also strive to share Christ with their fellow construction workers and prepare young people for life by equipping them with basic construction and maintenance skills.

Phil and Lucy Hayes, the founders and coordinators of Building In Youth, enjoyed their volunteer experience at the Camp and said, “Truly the Lord’s anointing is on Warm Beach Camp. There is such a spirit of love, generosity and encouragement among the staff and volunteers that impacts all those who attend. The testimony is far-reaching. We are so thankful to Warm Beach for the opportunity to partner with them.”
