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!

When Abundance Happens

“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children.

Outdoor Education!

The Outdoor Education Program at Warm Beach Camp offers schools a safe platform for their students to explore and grow as individuals, while surrounded by rich biodiversity. During “The Great Pioneer Skills Challenge” class, a middle school student was interested in attempting to make a quilting square. The individual had always been curious to sew but had no one to show them the way. Through trial and error and the help of volunteer staff, the child completed the sewing task ...
