Volunteers make all the difference!

Volunteer1875-240We often say that we could not do what we do if it weren’t for our volunteers, and here is the proof: in 2012, 1,435 volunteers donated 32,403 hours of volunteer labor. That is 22% of all documented work that took place on grounds last year, and a 1,000 hour increase over the previous year’s donated hours.

The largest project where our volunteers played a major role was the completion of the new Cedar Lodge restrooms. Volunteers also completely painted the exterior of Olympic View Lodge, replaced countless windows and doors in staff cottages, tested nearly every Lights of Christmas light string, gardened, cleaned anything that was dirty, power washed anything that was mossy, installed outdoor signs, chopped down trees, planted trees, built cabinets, took care of sick campers, mucked horse stalls, and stuffed envelopes.

Then, there were the events where volunteers helped, such as Memorial Day and Thanksgiving Working Weekends, the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Auction, and The Lights of Christmas, just to name a few.

As you can see, 2012 was a very productive year for Warm Beach Camp volunteers. There simply isn’t enough space to list everything they did this past year, and we don’t dare start to mention names because there isn’t enough room for that either, and we are afraid of leaving out a name or two!

From the volunteer that comes for a few hours to work on a special project, to the volunteers who come and stay for several months, or even longer, the combined effort of each of them was huge! We are very grateful to have so many brothers and sisters who come alongside and help with the Kingdom-of-God work here at Warm Beach Camp. Thank you!

But our leading priests and other religious leaders handed him over to be condemned to death, and they crucified him. We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel. This all happened three days ago.” Luke 24:19-21 ...
