High School Discipleship Camp
Why choose Wildwood?
The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do.

Wildwood is built for high school students who know Jesus but desire to be pushed out of their comfort zone into a closer, more intimate relationship with God. Our philosophy is to strip away the layers of falsehood and distraction in life. This is evidenced in daily quiet times, intentional activities, and in-depth discussions about students’ lives, struggles, and hearing God’s call for deeper relationship with Him. Set in the back forests of Hume’s property, Wildwood emphasizes the practice of spiritual disciplines and learning to be effective for Christ in response to the world’s challenges.
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!

Bible, notebook, pencil, flashlight, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, warm and cool clothes, jacket, modest one-piece swimsuit (no tankinis), a towel for swimming and showering. Wildwood has a small shop selling mostly Wildwood shirts and clothes. There will also be a trip into main camp where campers may browse the Apparel Store, Hume Supply Co., and the General Store.
If your child is bringing medication or supplements, please send them in their original containers. We are not able to give medication that we cannot identify and dose from the original container. Sending medication in anything other than the original container may result in the camper not receiving it.
Do NOT Bring:
Drugs (unless prescribed by a doctor), alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, firearms, electronic devices.
(Remember: Girls no bare midriffs or spaghetti straps; guys, no sagging.)
Camp begins with a hike in from Logger’s Flat. Counselors and staff continue with all luggage to normal check-in at the Ark.
Individuals must check in at the Ark first, then continue to loggers flat for their hike in.
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.
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.
