Serving adults with special needs

JEMS Warm Beach Special Camp seeks to provide an opportunity for the developmentally challenged to experience a fun-filled time of activities in an atmosphere of Christian love. Camp activities include times of singing, Bible-based lessons, crafts, outings, and recreation.

Quality of care is ensured by the following factors: 

  • Each conferee is placed in a one-on-one relationship with an adult staff counselor.
  • Pre-camp orientation prepares our staff counselors for the individual needs of the conferees.
  • Three meals are prepared and served daily by the Warm Beach Conference staff.
  • Housing is in a mini-lodge with, at minimum, 2 staff persons in the conferees' rooms.
  • The Warm Beach Conference facilities are well-staffed and maintained, and is a trusted, safe environment for the conferees.
