2019 Youth Workers Retreat

A Time to Unify

November 4-7, 2019


The front lines of youth ministry are a rewarding and tiring place to be. Come to Hume Lake and enjoy the fellowship of Hume Lake staff and like-minded youth workers. You’ll return home refreshed, better connected, and spiritually prepared for whatever God has in store for you!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity as Youth Workers of all walks of life come together to invest in each other. You will be challenged and inspired as we study God’s word and participate in round table discussions.

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 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. Then we open up registration for everyone else the day after the retreat is over.


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.
