Last year, our youth camp at Hume Lake was abruptly cancelled due to COVID. Even though we had an amazing alternative in Home Lake, where we made the most despite the circumstances, this year we’re excited to be going to Hume!
Hume Lake has an arsenal of activities for students! The high-energy, innovative games at Hume Lake give campers an outlet for their energy and counselors a chance to encourage team-building. Each afternoon during free time we push the limits while we play hard!

Located just south of the famous Yosemite National Park, it is a place of great natural beauty, with warm summer days, cool nights, an amazing lake and wilderness surroundings. God makes cool stuff!

We also get to worship a lot! Indoor worship, outdoor worship, corporate worship, devotional worship— Hume nurtures the attitude of worship from sunrise to sunset!


As of now, there are no COVID restrictions for camp this summer, including testing and masks!
