Camper Medication

You can locate your church’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) from your Online Account. This is a list of medications you should expect to collect. Please collect ALL medications, vitamins and supplements, except epi-pens, rescue inhalers & diabetic supplies. (Don't worry if it's not listed on the MAR, we can add it at camp!) All medication needs to be in its original container & in a Ziploc bag. Write your church name & each student's name in Sharpie on the bag. You’ll turn medications into our health center staff at check-in when you arrive, so please collect medications before campers load up into vehicles.

Check-In at Hume

This is for church administrators, pastors, or leaders who will have the required paperwork, medications, and payment for the church.

Present this at the park entrance booth to avoid being charged the park visiting fee. Please note that this is not a pass for access to visit the National Park. It is ONLY to pass through the park to get to Hume Lake. It only allows a vehicle to drive non-stop through the 4 miles of the park on your way to Hume Lake Christian Camps.

About the Wagon Train Theme

This summer we want students to understand the heart and character of God. In a world with so many different ideas and opinions about what God is like, we want to take students straight to the source to see the truth about who God is as shown to us in Scripture. Join us for an exciting journey through the story of the Exodus and see how God shows Himself to His people through His word, His actions, and the promises He keeps.

Theme Verse

Exodus 34:6-8

And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped.

About the Summer Theme

     When we understand the Truth of the Gospel and the love Christ has for us, His love compels us to share that Truth with everyone around us. This summer in Wildwood, we are going to challenge students to more fully understand the Truth of the Gospel, and our responsibility as disciples of Jesus, to make disciples. Students will be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to live missionally and engage in discipleship everyday.

     Our hope and prayer is that students recognize their need to be transformed everyday by Truth of the Gospel through the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit, as we challenge them to not only have a global mission’s focus, but also one that is centered on the harvest at hand in their communities, empowering them to proclaim the Truth of the Gospel with those around them.

Theme Verse

2 Corinthians 5:14-15, 20-21

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
