2018 Fall Men’s Retreat #2


October 25-28, 2018

Highlights from Last Year’s Retreat


The Men’s Retreat is designed to ignite passionate living with hundreds of men through outdoor activities, great food, engaging worship, and messages of conviction. It is a reminder that every man is called to a life of honesty, purity, and integrity. Become the man God has called you to be and be a light to a dark world.

Some older mapping services will suggest you take the 245. It is a curvy, winding road that will take you at least an additional hour. DO NOT take 245!

Check in starts at 3:00 PM the first day of the retreat.

You need to be checked out of your lodging by 11:00 AM the last day of the retreat.

We provide:

Dinner the first day of the retreat

All meals each full day of the retreat

Breakfast and lunch the last day of the retreat

We do not offer free guest WiFi at this point in time. We do offer Internet for a fee; however, the speeds here are not fast. Purchase at your own risk.

If you are attending the retreat, we give you the opportunity to sign up for the following year at the retreat. We then open up registration for everyone else soon after the retreat is over (usually a week from the end of the retreat).


Here at Hume, we absolutely love activities of all kinds. Scaling cliffs, jumping from trees, shooting stuff, driving wild roads, exploring mountains, and of course sport competition—the list is long and FUN.
