Outdoor Education

Christian School Science Camp

5th through 8th Grade


The Hume Lake Outdoor Education program is a Christ-centered, hands-on learning experience that will instill in students a passion for Christ, a respect for His creation and an understanding of the world around them.

Nestled deep in the Sequoia National Forest with multiple bodies of water and a variety of terrains & ecosystems, Hume Lake is the perfect classroom environment in which students will experience God’s creation.

Each of our outdoor adventure classes are designed to reinforce the state science standards you are teaching, while embedding our core values. Our energetic instructors will engage your students and make the learning process both fun and memorable while continually pointing students back to the creator. Time spent in chapels feature dynamic worship music, and an evening challenge from God’s word by our speakers, who live out what they teach, and know how to communicate with 5th – 8th grade students.

Available Classes


Climbing & Mountaineering

This class is a great faith-building activity and challenge where students will get to climb, learn about the history of the sport of mountaineering, and gain a better understanding of the safety equipment used for climbing.



In this class, we will take students into the world of insects. Students will learn what an insect is, how God has uniquely created them, and they will recognize the important role insects play in the ecosystem and to us as humans.



In this class, students will learn about the structure of the earth and its layers, different types of rocks, the rock cycle, as well as how weathering and erosion affects the shaping and formations we see today.



In this class students will have an opportunity to study earth’s atmosphere. We will look at everything from the power of the sun, water cycles, air pressure, and the impact of industry on the environment.



In this class we will look at these creatures and how God made them for a purpose. We will focus on a select group of birds known as birds of prey (or raptors) and study these “tigers of the sky.”



In Riflery we will study the history of the rifle, how it has evolved, and the science behind rifling. The students will also learn proper gun safety, marksmanship and other shooting techniques while having the opportunity to put them into practice at our BB & Pellet Gun Range.


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, a water bottle, $60 recommended spending money.
