Wagon Train

Camp for 8-11 year-olds

Summer 2019

Why choose Wagon Train?

Clear Gospel Message

The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do.

Exciting Theme

The theme is a practical link between the entertaining aspects of camp and our presentation of the Gospel. We leverage it as a background to Biblical truth.


The high-energy, innovative games at Hume Lake give campers an outlet for their energy and counselors a chance to encourage team-building.


Hume Lake has an arsenal of activities for you and your students. Each afternoon during free time we PLAY.

The Local Church

We believe children's pastors know their kids groups best. In light of that, we run camp in order to give children's pastors the freedom to focus on their kids.

Energetic Worship

Campfire worship, morning prayer, and marveling at God’s creation. We nurture the attitude of worship from sunrise to sunset.

Amazing Location

Hume is a place of great natural beauty, with warm summer days, cool nights, an amazing lake and wilderness surroundings. God makes cool stuff.


Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for kids age 8-11 years old, entering 3rd through 6th grades. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagon, learning Archery and BB guns, riding canoes and kayaks around the pond and exploring Fort Logan (our three-story island fort). 

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Camp-wide recreation games like Capture the Flag, the Water Carnival and our awesome night game Stampede will have you talking about camp for years to come. You’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. We almost forgot to mention: D&G tag, Chipmunk rappelling rock, Trading Post, and a tree house fit for a king: Burnside Manor. You’ll experience all this and more, like great food, friends and fun.

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!

2019 Summer Theme

Why Hootenanny?

This year at Wagon Train we want students to understand that Christ follow-
ers… follow Christ. Although many people in our world say they are a

“Chris-tian”, they often don’t really know what following Christ looks like.
Even the apostles themselves wrestled with the question of how to follow a
God that they couldn’t see! This summer we will have a rip-roarin’ good time
as we bust out our banjos, harmonicas, and washtub basses and explore the
lives of those earliest Christ followers to see what it really means to follow
