What Happens the Rest of the Year?

By Eugene Barnes, Director of Guest Services

A question that comes up often while I am working with Mike and Dakota, the draft horse team, as they pull the big wagon around the Tinhorn Town loop during The Lights of Christmas is, “So, what do you do the rest of the year?” I tell them that, as the Director of Guest Services, I have the privilege of working with a different team – Warm Beach Camp’s Guest Service Team.

As a year-round Christian camp and conference center, Warm Beach Camp provides a setting for more than 250 different non-profit groups, schools, and government agencies to come and hold their retreat, conference, or training program. Besides these, the Camp also sponsors nearly 60 different camps and retreats each year.

The Guest Service Team’s goal is to create a distraction-free setting that allows each of these groups to have a successful event. Great service is the cornerstone of Warm Beach Christian Camps and Conference Center, and we believe that our service can make a difference in each group fulfilling the objectives for their organization’s event. From the first phone call to the final evaluation and follow-up, our team does everything we can to help make each event a success.

Why is a weekend or week at Warm Beach Camp so effective? Warm Beach Camp is not home, church or the work place. It is a place unlike anywhere else, a place where people can set aside the daily routine and the hustle-bustle of twenty-first-century life to focus on a common goal, and on one another. In quiet settings, people experience needed relief from daily schedules, valuable time to reflect, and opportunities to strengthen, renew, and form relationships.

I would like to invite you and your group to experience the beauty, diversity, and hospitality that has made Warm Beach a premiere camp, conference, and retreat destination in the Pacific Northwest. Warm Beach Camp’s Guest Service Team would be honored to work with you to create a distraction-free setting that allows you to reach your program objectives. We are here to serve you!

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
