Broom Hockey Tournament

Never seen broom hockey before? Watch this!

This year we will be having an opening ceremonies again to start the tournament where each team will be “paraded” in front of the camp.
It's fun for students to think through a team name and possible costume to up the fun a little bit!
Some youth groups select their teams + team names before coming up to camp and then make t-shirts or bring costumes to enhance team spirit. Some argue whether or not it helps your game, but one thing is for sure, you feel/look awesome!

  • Teams may be comprised of several churches or one church may have several teams.
  • Each team consists of 8 campers. Campers may only play for one team in the tournament.
  • No co-ed teams. Guys play guys and girls play girls.
  • Counselors may not play in camper tournaments. However, if there is time, counselors can take on the Hume staff immediately after the tournament ends.
  • Registering teams will take place during Saturday morning breakfast.


Boxsled Blitz

On the last night of camp, we have the Boxsled Blitz Competition which takes place on our tube run. Watch this!

  • Each church can create one boxsled.
  • Your boxsled must have at least 2, but no more than 10 riders.
  • The boxsled must be comprised of 100% cardboard and duct tape! You will lose points/be disqualified for using any other materials, including paint.
  • We will have additional cardboard and duct tape here at Hume for sale if you run out!
  • Judging is based on creativity of the boxsled and the quality of the jump—which means different things to different judges. :)
  • Boxsleds can be built before coming up to Hume, but hopefully students can put finishing touches while here at camp to allow as many of your students as possible to work together, problem solve, and build some team spirit.

What to Bring

Bible, notebook, pencil, flashlight, sleeping bag, pillow, towel, toiletries, warm clothes, jacket, hat, gloves, boots, and $25-$50 recommended spending money. (Remember: Girls, no bare midriffs or spaghetti straps; guys, no sagging.)

What NOT to Bring

Drugs (unless prescribed by a doctor), alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, firearms, electronic devices. (Remember: There is no cell phone coverage up at camp, so leave it at home!)


Because of the limited number of days at camp during the Winter, there will be no camper mail or email.

Contains graphics, fliers, poster, and fonts.


Our desire this winter is to come face to face with God’s Holiness, our sinfulness, and Jesus’ sacrifice in hopes that we would live lives that are set apart. There is a danger that happens when we lower our view of who God is and raise the value of who we are, when we choose to trust or follow our feelings and culture verses God’s truth and His holiness.  We want to address this topic head on in hopes that students will fully understand the beauty of what Jesus has done for them and what their lives should look like in a response to that. Our theme is titled, “I AM”, and is based out of Isaiah 6:1-9 where we will look at Isaiah’s life-changing encounter with the Living God.

Theme Scripture

[Isaiah 6:1-9

2017 Winter Camp Band: To be announced

2016 Winter Camp Band: The Procession


We believe that God is worthy of worship. All creation sings God’s praise (Ps. 19:1-6) and it is our desire to see people join in this praise. 

Music is only one of the ways that we worship God. We desire to worship God with lives lived by faith in Christ’s love for us. Although life goes through ups and downs, God’s love for us will always remain constant. We trust that He loves us no matter how many times we turn away from Him, He will always love us, and we will always be able to find restoration and healing in Him.

As a band, we want to live lives marked by faithfulness, dependence on God, and participation in God’s plan to redeem all things. We hope that our ministry through music can come alongside the ministry and the worship done by the Church. Christian living can’t be done in isolation, and it is our desire to see people join together in one body as they worship God and rejoice in his work through Jesus Christ.

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.
