Pricing & Housing

Wagon Train:

Father-Son Adventure camp takes place in our Wagon Train Camp facility.  Wagon Train is located just beyond the main area of camp.  It is close to everything, but still isolated enough that you feel like you are camping in the great outdoors.  The cost of Father-Son adventure camp is $189/person.  

Fathers and sons will be housed together with other fathers and sons. You will be sleeping on bunk beds in genuine covered wagons.  Optionally, if you would like to bring your own tent and camp on the lawn please contact our registration department to make special arrangements.

About Hume

People

Hume Lake exists to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hume’s very mission statement expresses our desire that each person coming into contact with this ministry will learn of the love and power of a life lived in Christ. We believe that in this message lies the only hope for a world desperately searching for something more. The Ministry of Hume Lake Christian Camps is committed to reaching the lost for Jesus Christ.

Programs

As a Para-church organization, Hume seeks to serve the local church. Hume’s programs offer a Christian response to today’s culture through recreation, video, music, onstage speakers and presentations, which all work to introduce people to the Lord Jesus Christ in a way that is unexpectedly refreshing. The Hume environment is designed to minister to new believers while also encouraging those who are saved to pursue God in a new and deeper way.

Facilities

Nestled in the Sequoia National Forest, 365 acres of God’s creation provides the perfect backdrop for a life changing experience. While our facilities include multiple chapels, dining halls, pools, recreating lawns, ropes courses and deluxe accommodations; most important are the majestic setting and solitude where you can hear God speak to you. Hume’s facilities have been designed to provide everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable retreat experience.

Transformation

True life-transformation requires more than a fun mountaintop experience. Simply serving the local church by sharing the Gospel isn’t enough. We understand that true transformation is the work of the Holy Spirit. It’s our role to diligently and prayerfully prepare our staff, programs and facilities and then depend on God to work in the hearts of his people.
