Volunteering with Warm Beach Camp Ministries

Volunteers are an integral piece of Warm Beach Camp Ministries. Volunteers help in a multitude of areas to keep the ministry operating smoothly and enable growth. Whether staying year-round or popping in for a day of service we value our volunteers!

In mid-November, staff and volunteers from Black Diamond Camp joined forces with staff and volunteers from Warm Beach Camp for three days to prepare for The Lights of Christmas event. During this time, the Stanwood Rotary Club spent an afternoon volunteering by distributing The Lights of Christmas posters and brochures to businesses around town. The team that makes the event happen each evening is a combination of staff and volunteers from the Warm Beach and Black Diamond community. Teamwork truly makes The Lights of Christmas happen. This season, we have about 25 volunteers per night working alongside our staff to share Christ-centered hospitality and Christmas joy.

From high school students to retired couples and everything in between, some are here for just a few days and some for months. Many of our volunteers come from our local communities and others from across the country. Last summer, we had a nurse from Tennessee, a construction worker from Oklahoma, a painter from California, and several full-time RV couples and families from various places.

Staff and volunteers from Warm Beach Camp also go down to Black Diamond Camp several times to assist with the ministry there. Summer and winter are our busiest seasons, but there are year-round opportunities to support Warm Beach Camp Ministries through volunteering. Whether you like to build things, garden, clean, serve food or play with Christmas décor all year long, we have a place for you. The highlight of volunteering at Warm Beach Camp Ministries is being part of this rich community. To join the team or learn more, go here!

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 ...

Connecting people to Jesus at Rainier Retreat Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries partners with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort to make Rainier Camp & Retreat Center home for many of Crystal’s seasonal workers. Serving our Guests at Rainier Camp is a true call of God and a fantastic opportunity for Warm Beach Camp Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I can't lie, it's a challenge, as most of the guests on the mountain don't know Jesus. The difficulty lies in presenting the Gospel in a way ...
