The wait is over, yes its true, Friends Kids is going to Hume Lake Wagon Train this summer! We believe that Hume Lake is one of the best Christian Camps in the wild wild west; 4th and 5th Grade students (as of Fall 2020) won’t want to miss out on campfire worship, hiking, exploring, and sleeping in a real covered wagon! We are so excited to take our kids to this fun, old-west experience, it’s going to be a great adventure and we hope you will join us!

We have payment plans available, please email for questions.

Throughout history, God has chosen to communicate with people through the use of outdoor settings. Summer Camp gives kids a chance to get out of their daily routine and to invite their friends to do the same. Here, they are able to connect with God and with each other. So, in this “wilderness” setting, kids will have an opportunity to think about their lives and be able to start living the abundant life of Christ.
Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for kids age 8-11 years old. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagons, learning Archery, riding canoes around the pond, and exploring Fort Logan (Hume’s three-story island fort).

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Camp-wide recreation games like Capture the Flag, the Water Carnival, and Hume’s awesome night game Stampede will have your child talking about camp for years to come. We’ll also sit around a campfire singing worship songs, memorize scripture, watch amazing skits about the Bible performed by the Wagon Train staff and hear each morning and evening the Good News of Jesus and his love for us.

The price of camp is $599, a deposit of $119.80 is required upon registration with the balance being due by May 15. There are limited spots, so please sign up quickly!

Please note that students will need to bring a disposable lunch for the ride to camp as well as $10 to cover the lunch cost on the ride home from camp.
