Recreation and Activities
Throughout the week, teams compete to earn points during Hume’s high-energy recreation time each day. Students will compete together, memorize Bible verses, and work together in fun team-building activities like the famous belly flop competition and Spirit Day!
During Thursday morning recreation, we will kick it back to the old school days of relay races with insane amounts of fun and high energy. It’s the day in the week to dress up and go crazy with your Rec Team, so get together with your cabin, and figure out how you want to come dressed! The theme this year is “Denim on Denim.”
Free Time Activities
Each afternoon from 1–5 pm, students have a chance to hang out together, enjoy the beauty of the Hume property, and experience fun and free-time activities.
Free activities include canoeing and kayaking, fishing, swimming in the pool, tubing down a huge slip ‘n’ slide into the lake, gaga pit, archery, frisbee golf, ping pong, a huge chess board, lakeside nature trail, game room (pool table, ping pong, board games), and much more!
What should I bring to camp?
Electronics and Cell Phones
Although we discourage bringing any electronic devices, they will be allowed for a portion of the drive to and from camp. All devices, including cell phones, will be collected before we arrive at camp and returned on the drive back home. Students may use their leader’s cell phone to call or text home as needed. Parents may also contact leaders at any time. Please know leaders will not always carry his/her phone during camp activities but will check for messages when able.
