Wildwood Discipleship Camp


Wildwood is Hume Lake's discipleship camp for students who wish to push themselves beyond the familiar into a world of exceptional devotion to God. Wildwood's philosophy of stripping away the layers of falsehood and distraction is evidenced in daily interactions and candid discussions about students' lives, struggles, and answering God's call for deeper devotion to Him. Set in the back forests of Hume's property, Wildwood emphasizes overcoming obstacles and learning to discipline oneself in response to the challenges of life.

2016 Theme: Coming Soon

2015 Theme: Vast




Theology – the study of God – is something we come face-to-face with daily.

Romans 11:33 tells us that the God we worship is vast. Like a deep canyon or unending cave, there is so much more to Him than meets the eye. We cannot deny that our view of God and how we live out our day-to-day lives are affected by those understandings of Him. 
With this in mind, the question then becomes:

Has your theology been shaped by scripture or something else?

As we take a deep, biblical look at theology, we do not want to forsake what it means to live rightly in relationship with God, but rather allow the things we learn about Him to transform the way we live as His disciples. 

Join us this summer as we study what it means to know this vast God.

Romans 11:33 -  “Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!”


About Hume


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.


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.


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.


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.
