2016 Hume SD High School Week 3July 3-8, 2016
  • Speaker: Ryan Guard

    Ryan Guard is the Teaching/Adult Ministries Pastor at Mission Community Church in Gilbert, AZ. He's been in full-time ministry for 14 years, starting out as a Jr. High Pastor for 3 years, then as a High School/Student Ministries Pastor for the next 11. He certainly didn't expect to become a pastor when he grew up, or even a Christian for that matter! God got ahold of his hardened heart while he was in college, and he's never been the same. He has a deep passion for teaching the Word of God to students, utilizing plenty of humor, stories, and practical applications along the way. He used to be pretty good at basketball, but those days are long gone, and now it's just sad to watch him play. He has been married to Lindsay for 8 years, and they have three children, Griffin (5), Gavin (2) and Hadley who was born in June of 2015.

2016 Hume SD Jr High Week 4July 10-15, 2016
  • Speaker: Matt Davis

    Matt Davis wants to live in a world where roasted garlic is served at every meal, Costco is open 24 hours a day and every morning begins with rain, a good book and an extraordinary cup of coffee. As the Marriage + Family Pastor at Calvary Church of Santa Ana, he's likely to be found preaching from the main stage, playing whiffle ball with students or explaining to someone how to love and live for Jesus. When he is not at Calvary, he is spending time with Marilee, his hippie/farmer bride of 14 years and his three kids, Noah "the Reader" (10), Jed "the Slugger" (8) and Karis "the Future Dictator of a Small Island Nation" (6).

Essentials

Clear Gospel Message

HumeSD: Clear Gospel Message

The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do.

Speakers at Hume SD know teenagers as well as their bibles. They unwrap and animate God’s truth in ways that connect with students.

Students will hear the gospel of Jesus in chapels and talks, then wrestle with it in seminars, breakouts, and all those unscripted moments between youth pastors and students that a Hume SD camping experience delivers.


Dynamic Worship

HumeSD: Dynamic Worship

Indoor worship, outdoor worship, corporate worship, devotional worship.

Hume SD nurtures the attitude of worship from sunrise (over San Diego bay) to sunset (over the pacific ocean). Just step out of your dorm, and you can’t help but acknowledge God here in what has been called the most beautiful spot in San Diego.

Personal quiet times, small-group prayer, our dawn patrol sunrise worship—you'll have plenty of options for exalting the lord. For listening to him, too. (It helps that distractions are few here—no phones or ipods, for instance.)

And our musicians are selected for their giftedness in bringing students into the presence of the lord.


Service Opportunities

HumeSD: Service Opportunities

As the 9th largest city in the United States, San Diego has many thriving urban and international mission organizations. Through partnerships with these groups, Hume SD provides campers and counselors with safe, supervised opportunities to serve people in immediate, tangible ways.

Whether it’s handing out food and socks to the homeless or packing lunches to be sent into Mexico, students are taken out of their “me-centered” culture and confronted with a world of hunger, loneliness and need.

Campers will learn the power of a pair of socks and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is life transformation, for the servants as well as for those in need.

Please refer to the "Serve" tab above for more information on how to sign up for specific ministry days.


 

Facilities

HumeSD: Facilities

Don’t mistake Hume SD for beach camping.

The drop-dead gorgeous campus of Point Loma Nazarene University sits atop the ridge of a peninsula, San Diego bay on one side, the ocean on the other. Walk in just about any direction through this lush, pristinely kept garden campus, and you’ll see water. Lots of water.

And because it’s a university campus, all 93 acres of it is designed for students. Modern dorms, gated grounds, great food services, rec fields, and no end of activities. And did we mention the endless ocean view?


 

Location

HumeSD: Location

Hume SD is strategically located on the Point Loma Peninsula in beautiful San Diego.

Easy to find and quick to get to, the private college campus and ever-present ocean view removes all the distractions of the city and allows campers (and counselors!) the chance to enjoy God’s creation.

Service opportunities in downtown and beach activities at mission beach are a short bus ride away.


Recreation

HumeSD: Recreation

For an hour a day, we let kids be kids. We call it recreation.

The high-energy, innovative games at Hume SD give campers an outlet for their energy, while providing counselors a chance to encourage team-building and leadership skills.

Game-winning teams are awarded points throughout the week, and on spirit day themed costumes multiply your points to give your team the cutting edge!

While all campers receive a free “rec” shirt, only the winning team gets the coveted “champion” shirt.


Activities

HumeSD: Activities

Free, on-campus diversions include disk golf, basketball, ping-pong, billiards, foosball, volleyball, and a mechanical bull.

Or students can dive into water sports, thanks to our partnership with Ocean Experience, whose certified instructors will have your kids safely surfing or sea-kayaking.

Of course, all are welcome to bring their own boogie and surf boards, and indulge their wave-riding desires.

We’ll even drive students down to the surf and back again after they’ve had enough of the wind, water, and sun. (If anyone can have enough of those.)


Theme

HumeSD: Camp Theme

The theme is a creative and practical link between the fun, entertaining aspects of camp and our presentation of the gospel.

While we believe that the theme is a critical part of the camp experience, it is our desire that by the end of the week it becomes background to the biblical truths taught throughout the week.

The opener, the daily videos, the recreation team names, spirit day and the free camp dvd are some of the programming elements we use to capture campers attention, win their trust, and direct their focus to the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Local Church Ministry

HumeSD: Local Church Ministry

Let us agree on one thing: your youth pastor—not us or any other ministry resource provider—knows your youth group best.

We run Hume SD in order to give youth pastors freedom to do what they do best—relate to students, listen, offer guidance, love. To that end, we free them up from the myriad details required for a successful, memorable camping experience—the programming, lodging, meals, recreation, speakers, music. They do enough of that anyway.

So this time, we'll do the footwork while your youth pastors ministers to your students. After all, when Jesus left this planet, he left behind a church, not a camp.

Serve

Each afternoon during free time, campers are given the opportunity to put what they're learning at camp into practice through opportunities to reach out.  

New Vision Christian Fellowship is our partner in reaching the urban areas of San Diego.  Over 10,000 homeless people live in San Diego, with over 20% of those being women and children. New Vision affords Hume SD campers opportunities in Hotel Ministry, Service Projects, Street Ministry, and Homeless Shelters. A $15 per participant donation goes to New Vision to help provide desperately needed supplies for this ministry opportunity and to help New Vision's ongoing ministry.  If you will need us to arrange and provide transportation for your group doing the urban ministry, there will be an additional $5 charge per person to help cover the cost of transportation.

Check out the descriptions and details of the different Urban Ministry opportunities we have for you at Hume SD on this pdf:  Hume SD Urban Missions

Please contact Jeff Brannan at jbrannan@humelake.org or call 559.305.7711 for more information and to sign up your students.

Theme

2016 Theme: BINGO

We live in the midst of a world that is not the way God intended it to be.
The prophet Elijah also experienced ungodliness happening all around him yet chose to trust and obey the Lord's commands by taking a stand and proclaiming God's truth. This summer Hume will take a look at the life of Elijah and challenge students to proclaim God’s truth in an ungodly culture.

Theme Verse

1 Kings 18:37a - “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God.”
