My time spent as a horse camper were some of my favorite childhood memories. Each summer, I would wait in anticipation for my week of horse camp, packing my bags far in advance before I would go. I could not wait to spend a week with horses, staff, and fun all day long.

I would never in a million years take away my time at camp, and honestly, it has helped shape me into the person I am today.

Connecting people to Jesus at Rainier Retreat Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries partners with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort to make Rainier Camp & Retreat Center home for many of Crystal’s seasonal workers. Serving our Guests at Rainier Camp is a true call of God and a fantastic opportunity for Warm Beach Camp Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I can't lie, it's a challenge, as most of the guests on the mountain don't know Jesus. The difficulty lies in presenting the Gospel in a way ...
