About Hume Lake

Hume Lake Christian Camps is a phenomenal place for students (6th-12th grade) to get away from the busyness and distractions that young people face on a daily basis and have an incredible camp experience. When you come to Hume, you will hear the gospel preached, be challenged through scripture, engage in sweet worship through music and get some time alone and with your church to process what God did in your life up here at camp. Hume Lake takes pride in its high energy recreation allowing kids to be kids. If you allow it, a week at Hume can and will change your life forever.

My student takes prescription medication, what should I do? 

When you check your student in, please have them in a separate large ziploc bag and ready to turn in. Please include a simple instruction sheet including how often and what its for. PLEASE make sure they are in the original bottles.

If your camper carries an inhaler for asthma please have them carry it with them. If they have additional inhaler for acute asthma attacks please turn that in with medications.

The camp can provide basic over the counter meds as needed.

• NO Electronic Music/Games (i.e. iPods & Nintendo DS): These are a  distraction in camp and could get lost.
• NO Weapons- Anything they can’t bring to school (i.e. pocket knife)
• Careful with Precious Items: We encourage families not to send them to camp with something so valuable. If you’d be heartbroken if it came home damaged or didn’t come home at all, keep it at home.
• DON’T OVERPACK- They’re gone for 6 days, they shouldn’t have more stuff than they can carry.
• Put your name on all your belongings. (sharpie marker on the tag)

• Students are required to bring money for lunch on the road Sunday and Saturday. Enough for a fast food meal. (You may want to pack this in a separate bag or in an envelope. Often students spend all their money as soon as possible.)

• The Hume Lake Snack Shop, General Store, Gift Shop, and Clothing Company will be open throughout the week – for all their candy and souvenir “needs”. 

• Also there are fees for boat rentals (a few bucks) and paintball (a few more bucks).

• We recommend $50-$100 of spending money. 

Hume Lake has a great staff up at camp. They’re trained for anything that might come up while in camp and do all summer long. We bring our own adult leaders as the counselors who have been through our General Staff and Camp Training.

If a student is new, and knows one or two people, we are always sure that they are in a cabin with the person they came with. It is impossible to be sure that everyone is in their perfect cabin, but we do our best.
