Please welcome Emily Lambert, our new Development Systems Coordinator 

Emily began working at Warm Beach Camp as Summer Staff in 2002. From there, Emily filled many roles: Youth Camp Counselor, Youth Camp Dean, Summer Staff Accommodations, Dining Room Manager, Outdoor Education Director, and many roles in The Lights of Christmas. In 2015 Emily and her family moved to Wenatchee to serve in church ministry.  

After six years, Emily, her husband Matt, and four children (Elijah 12, Jonah 10, Asher 8, Mercy 4) are returning to Warm Beach Camp. Emily said, “I love the community life at Warm Beach Camp.  Camping ministry has always been woven into my core, it has always been one of my very favorite places to serve, and I am excited for our family to be back serving and living at Camp!” 

Having Emily on the Development Team will be a blessing to the department and the ministry. Emily is also excited about learning a new facet of ministry. “I love that Development gets to share the powerful story of what goes on at Warm Beach Camp Ministries with the people who hold Warm Beach near and dear like I do.  I look forward to learning a new role and being a support to the team.” 

Emily has long been a part of the Warm Beach family, and we are excited to now welcome her to the Development Team!
