See & read about what is going on in the Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center community

Who does anything at camp in the dead of winter?

JudyLang2Judy Lang pulled into Warm Beach Camp (WBC) last December to be a volunteer at The Lights of Christmas, but her journey to becoming a Camp volunteer started many years ago when she first attended Warm Beach Camp as a Seattle Pacific University (SPU) student.

After graduating from SPU, Judy went on to work with refugees, migrants and international college students, teaching English as a Second Language for academic purposes.

In 2006, Judy pursued a Masters of Divinity degree at Regent College, a graduate school of theology in Vancouver B.C. Each year, Regent holds a retreat at WBC for students and faculty. While attending Regent, Judy again attended a retreat at Warm Beach Camp, this time with Regent.

With retirement approaching, Judy contemplated what the coming years would bring.

While at a state park on Labor Day, 2015, Judy bumped into an RV’er who told her about volunteering at Warm Beach Camp. It made sense to Judy that a camp would have opportunities in the summer, but, she said, “I wondered, who does anything at a camp in the dead of winter?” As it turns out, Warm Beach Camp does, and it’s called The Lights of Christmas!

The first week of December, Judy sent an e-mail to WBC inquiring about volunteer opportunities, and a few short days later, she was pulling her RV on grounds to volunteer. She had a great time and never worked the same job twice at The Lights of Christmas. She enjoyed being on the Security team the most as she “got the scope of everything that was going on.”

Judy has decided to stay on as a long-term volunteer. She says she enjoys “doing something that has value and is part of a Christ-centered community.” We are excited to have Judy Lang as part of the Warm Beach Camp family.

Ultimate Love

“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/jhn.15.13.NLT A time tested favorite game on the front lawn of Cedar Lodge is Ultimate Frisbee.  The name speaks for itself.  Two teams. Each has a clear goal where points are scored.  Offense and defense are involved.  Play with 10 people or 100 people, it doesn’t matter.  There is no better form of Frisbee with a group of people. We all have ideas ...

Do Right, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

“No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what He requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/mic.6.8.NLT There’s a real challenge going on in the world.  It appears at many levels that we are losing interest in God. I see it in campers who are coming to Warm Beach Camp. Many have no knowledge of God, the Bible, and ...

God Is My Example

“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/eph.5.1-2.NLT I have had the privilege of watching generations of families come through Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center. Each generation seeks to be unique, and yet, often times I see the example of the previous generation ...
