pWe don’t want finances to be the reason students can’t go to camp. Hume Lake has an amazing Campership program, and our policy has generally been to match any camperships awarded by Hume Lake. You will be given the option to apply for a Campership during the registration process. If assistance is needed beyond that, please contact us (all requests will be kept confidential).
*If your camper is sent home during camp for Covid-19 related reasons, we will prorate the cost of camp by the number of nights the camper was in camp before testing positive. Hume Lake has offered this to us, we are transferring this generosity to you!
THEMES FOR SUMMER 2023 @ HUME
Theme Verse: Daniel 3:16-18
In a culture that is increasingly opposed to Christianity, how can we remain faithful to our amazing God? Perhaps, it is by understanding that God is faithful to us and therefore worthy to be followed! This summer we will have an incredible time studying the book of Daniel. Our theme, Steadfast, will be set in a world where the wild west collides with marvelous medieval times. We will examine the steadfastness of Daniel and his friends while challenging ourselves to practice daily spiritual disciplines. Like Daniel, this will encourage us to be steadfast unto our God amidst a culture that is trying to deter us from doing so. Yeehaw!
MEADOW RANCH & ponderosa
Theme Verse: Daniel 3:14-18
Super Spirit Day: Under the Sea
Recreation Teams: Sunny Surfs vs Tiki Turfs
This summer's theme will take place with our main characters exiled on an Island in the Pacific Northwest in the 1940's, being forced to assimilate into this new culture and home they find themselves in or stand firm on their convictions and beliefs. There will be many fun, unexpected twists and turns along the way that we will watch unfold throughout the week as we follow our character study.
We live in a world that is increasingly hostile towards Christianity, meaning that biblical truths are not widely accepted as cultural norms, and Christians are seen as narrow-minded, ignorant, and intolerant. Many things in culture are changing in a direction that is contradictory to the Word of God, and as Christ followers, we find ourselves in the midst of this reality asking ourselves questions such as, “how do we live with resilience as followers of Christ?” and “how do we stand firm on our convictions and beliefs while demonstrating care and respect for others at the same time?” These are questions that the Christ follower will wrestle through as we live out our faith resiliently. This summer we will look at the life of Daniel, and as we study his life, we will see an incredible example of a man who did this well. As we learn from Daniel’s life, our prayer is that we would have a better understanding of what it means to live in a hostile culture without compromise and that our faith would be one of resilience, able to withstand and recover quickly from difficult conditions.
Throughout the week of camp, we will study the book of Daniel together, predominately the first 6 chapters. If you are unfamiliar with this story, take some time before camp to read it thoroughly. As you do, pray and ask the Lord to reveal the truth of His word to you, maybe jot down questions that come up and ask your youth pastor, small group leader or a mentor.

PACKING LIST AND ACTIVITIES
Bible, notebook, pencil, flashlight, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, warm and cool clothes, jacket, modest one-piece swimsuit (no tankinis), a towel for swimming and showering, spending money for activities and keepsakes. $100 is the recommended amount for spending money. (Remember: Girls no bare midriffs or spaghetti straps; guys, no sagging.) If females cannot find a one-piece bathing suit, they will be required to wear a dark-colored shirt over their suit at all times. Students are not permitted to bring drugs (unless prescribed by a doctor), alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, firearms, and electronic devices. Students are not permitted to bring or use phones at camp.
Modesty is the policy at Hume Lake, and they ask that special attention be given to fit, appropriateness and slogans. Also, shoes and shirts are required during all meals and around camp.
Hume Lake required that bathing suits be one-piece. Those without a one-piece suit may wear a dark colored t-shirt to cover a two piece. Hume Lake has provided us with the following examples that do not conform to the modesty concept: Girls - Extreme French cut bathing suits, low-cut and/or revealing necklines, open midriff, tops or dresses with spaghetti straps that are smaller than 1". Guys - speedos or underwear showing over pants/shorts that hang too low.
