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!

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
