fall retreat

WHEN: Friday, Sept. 2 - *Monday Sept. 5

WHERE: Hume Lake Christian Camp

WHO: college, post college, and young professionals (18-26 year olds)

*Optional Tuesday return available


The weekend is themed BREAKAWAY because we believe that when we pause God reveals himself in new fresh ways. We know that as a young adult two things are valuable. Time and a lack of money. This retreat is all included for just $60 till June 30th. Check out early bird registration schedule below:





Fall Retreat s a high-energy 3 or 4-night event at Hume Lakes flagship location in the Sequoia National Park. It’s structured specifically for young adults and is designed with fun experiences, options for solo or community time, powerful worship, sessions for spiritual growth, time to deepen relationships, teaching from God’s Word, and serving together as a community.

Yes, and if you’re willing to be a driver for others we will cover your gas.

Great question, we will have info meetings before we go where we will help you meet a few more people, we also will place you in a car for traveling which will give you time to meet someone new. 

We love to help people stay with people they know. When you register place the names of people you know are coming, or who you invited to sign up. We will try our best to honor your requests and make sure you get at least 1 of your people with you. 
There are lots of options to buy a new hoody, enjoy a burger, or grab a specialty coffee. These do cost extra, but your registration covers the cost for all meals from Friday night – when you leave the camp. The only extra money needed is for food on the way up or down.
Yes, black bears frequent the area. But you are in cabins with doors and locks. If you stay up late you will likely see a bear roaming near the boathouse.
