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: Draw
We were created to have a relationship with the God of the universe, and to live in constant communion with our maker. Unfortunately, in this life there is an endless barrage of distractions and temptations luring our focus away from being able to experience this relationship to the fullest. Having an understanding of the importance of this relationship, what can we do to both prioritize and maintain it?
Fortunately for us, James 4:8 tells us that is as simple as drawing near to The Lord. In scripture we are given examples of how to do this through what are called “spiritual disciplines”. This summer, we are going to examine what these disciplines are, why they are important, and encourage one another to DRAW more near to the Lord.
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.
