Your Workplace may be an Avenue for Giving

Many people give to Warm Beach Camp out of the resources God has given them as individuals and families. We praise God for them. But others have discovered they can share out of the resources of their business, occupation, or professional talents. Here’s how:

  • Many companies have gift matching programs for their employees. Your employer may match every dollar you give to a qualified non-profit organization. Check with your employer to see if they have a gift matching program and to find out how you can participate.
  • In most cases, you can give to Warm Beach Camp through the United Way Campaign in your workplace. Warm Beach Camp is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and as such, can receive designated gifts through the United Way Campaign. Simply name Warm Beach Camp as the recipient of all or a portion of your pledge when you fill out your United Way pledge card in this year’s Campaign. Your United Way Campaign Coordinator can give you information on how to direct your pledge to a specific agency of your choice.
  • Volunteer your professional skills to Warm Beach Camp. We are looking for people who are skilled in nursing, the construction trades, office and technical work, building maintenance, and more. Chances are, we can use you.

For more information, call Gary Kocher at 360-312-3232 or email Gary  and let us know how you would like to help the ministry of Warm Beach Camp. Together, we can see God do great things in the lives of children, youth, adults, and families.

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 ...
