Welcome Allison Brannon!

We are excited to welcome Allison Brannan as a Group Sales Specialist at Warm Beach Camp Ministries!

Allison grew up in Kent, Washington, and graduated from Thomas Edison State University with a bachelor’s in liberal studies.

She worked part-time from 2008 to 2016 in the Equestrian Program at Camp Berachah. During that time, Allison assisted with therapeutic lessons, led trail rides, became a CHA-certified instructor, and taught Western and English lessons. Camp Berchah became Black Diamond Camp (a Warm Beach Camp Ministries campus), and from March 2016 to November 2023, Allison worked full-time as a Guest Services Event Coordinator.

With her recent transition to a Group Sales Specialist position, Allison looks forward to meeting with potential group leaders to promote and share the opportunities at Camp. When asked what she is most excited about, she said, “There are many factors that come into play for a retreat to happen for a group, and having the opportunity to use my experience and knowledge of Camp to help leaders see our facility and start that initial planning process is always a highlight.”

When not at work, Allison loves hiking with friends, walking her dog, or finding a scenic view. She also enjoys quiet days at home, surrounded by friends. Welcome, Allison; we are glad that you are here!

God Speaks through Rosie

I have recently been given the opportunity to work with Rosie, one of our newer horses that we are bringing along in training here at the Warm Beach Horsemanship barn. I am always excited to get to know a new horse and their personality. However, it didn’t take long to realize this sweet mare harbored a lot of anxiety and worry. I tried to coax her into calmness with gentleness and patience, but she still didn’t fully trust me. When ...
