Hume New England Winter Camp
Hume's Winter Camp is unique each year, presenting the truth of the Gospel in a fresh way through a creative narrative and theme. We do this to give students and their youth pastors a fresh context that reenergizes the conversations and relationships they've been investing in all year. And with our fun games, dynamic worship, and great food, you'll wish snow camp never ended!
What can I expect at a Hume camp?
CLEAR GOSPEL MESSAGE
Hume New England guest speakers know kids and teens as well as their Bibles. They unwrap and animate God’s truth in ways that connect with today’s youth. Students will hear the Gospel of Jesus in chapels, then wrestle with it in cabin time, and in all those unscripted moments with counselors that a Hume New England camping experience delivers.
Hume New England nurtures an attitude of worship in all that we do. We enjoy seeing students have fun, but our true joy is leading each one to seek God in every aspect of their life.
The high-energy, innovative games at Hume New England give campers an outlet for their energy, while providing counselors a chance to encourage team-building and leadership skills. We call it recreation.
Your group competes against other groups throughout the weekend in activities such as broom hockey, tube run, the box sled blitz, and several other tournaments
It is a place of great natural beauty, with warm bright summer days, cool starry nights, crisp colorful autumns, cold snowy winters, sparkling water, and woodsy wilderness surroundings.
Hume New England’s expansive acreage and comfortable facilities in the Berkshire Mountains provide dynamic and powerful opportunities for Christian growth and fellowship in a setting rich with potential for outdoor enjoyment, challenge, recreation, and relaxation.
Hume New England has an arsenal of age-appropriate seasonal activities for you and your students. Each afternoon during free-time they will enjoy traditional camp favorites as well as exciting new activities—all within walking distance!
The theme is a creative and practical link between the fun, entertaining aspects of camp and our presentation of the Gospel.
While we believe that the theme is a critical part of the camp experience, it is our desire that by the end of the week it becomes background to the Biblical truths taught throughout the week.
We produce our own video series specifically to capture campers’ attention, win their trust, and direct their focus to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We run camp in order to give youth workers freedom to do what they do best—relate to students, listen, offer love and guidance. We free them up from the myriad of details required for a successful, memorable camping experience—the programming, lodging, meals, recreation, speakers, and music so they can minister to students.
After all, when Jesus left this planet, he left behind a church, not a camp.
