Spiritual Emphasis

Christian School Discipleship Retreat

For High School and Middle School Students

What is a Spiritual Emphasis Retreat?

Hume Lake Spiritual Emphasis Retreats are designed for Christians Schools who desire to set aside time for students, teachers, and counselors to develop and deepen their love for Jesus as well as each other, in an environment apart from their normal daily routine.

What can we expect?

Created with Christian schools in mind, Spiritual Emphasis Retreats offer group activities, unique group-building and individual challenges, and times of powerful worship. Our goal is to help break students out of their normal routines and allow them to hear God’s word with a clear mind and a humble attitude.

Evening meetings and small group time provide solid biblical teaching and allow students to digest and wrestle with the truth in a supportive environment. Included free time lets kids be kids and enjoy the many adventures Hume Lake has to offer.

A Registered Nurse is around for each week of camp and there is a volunteer fire dept on-site with on-call EMT staff daily. There is a fully-stocked First Aid station with 24 hour access to counselors, and our registered nurse administers and ensures all daily medications are given to campers.

Please send any medications (including supplements) in the original container. Do not send common as needed medication like Tylenol & Ibuprofen as the infirmary has these available. Campers may only keep Epi pens and rescue inhalers with them. All other medications must be turned into the camp Nurse, and will be dispensed at each meal and before bedtime. A registered nurse will also be on-call to provide first aid.
