Two Ways to Bring Your Group

Join One of Our Programs

All you need to do is get your group to camp — we take care of everything so that you and your leaders have the time and space to connect with your students!

Our summer camp is intentionally designed to provide an epic, high-energy, life-changing program for youth groups of all sizes. We accomplish this not only through traditional programming — speakers, bands, campfires, and activities — but also through creative themes, full-production films, stage theatrics, innovative recreation, and dynamic worship.

Run Your Own Retreat

Our warm and friendly staff, quality facilities and pristine 425-acre property make Hume the perfect location for your next church or group retreat.

Our grounds and facilities are tucked away in the heart of the Berkshires of Massachusetts, situated between 1600 and 1800 ft. in elevation. A perfect location to relax, replenish, retreat, and reconnect.

We will walk through the entire planning process with you to help design the perfect experience for your group.
