Health Screening - Pre Arrival

Health Screenings are required for all camps. Click on the Health Screening Form here. Be sure to complete it no earlier than 24 hours before arrival by a healthcare professional. 

Camper Medication at Arrival

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.

Camper Medication at Departure

Your group's medications will need to be picked up by a group admin at the medication station at breakfast on the last day. We are not able to mail medication left behind to the churches or individuals. If any medications are left behind, the Health Center will call the group leader to arrange for them to be picked up.

Sick Camper Policy

Campers who feel ill while at camp, and are brought to the health center by their youth leader, will be evaluated for a fever and other contagious symptoms. If a camper is found to have a fever in excess of 100.4 and have potentially contagious symptoms, they will be isolated at the health center until the fever is gone for 24 hours without any anti-fever medication in their system, and their symptoms are improved. If symptoms persist or temperature goes above 102, then arrangements will need to be made to have the camper picked up from camp by a parent or guardian in the shortest time frame possible. If the 24 hour isolation period would exceed the time remaining in camp, a parent or guardian will be responsible for the pick up of the camper in the shortest time frame possible.

Sick Camper Transportation

It is imperative that parents are aware of this policy and are ready to pick up their camper in the case where they become sick and potentially contagious. Hume does not recommend transporting sick campers home in the same bus or vehicle that is being used to transport healthy students. In the event of serious injury or a life-threatening emergency, Hume will assist with the transportation of campers, but we strongly urge all churches to have an additional vehicle on site for the medical transportation of campers in non-emergency situations or due to illness.

Check-In at Hume

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

 

When you arrive, follow the signs for Check-in. 

Check-in Location: The Dining Hall

Check-in Begins: 4:00 PM

Counselor Resources and Training

We believe the counselors that you bring with your church are a key part of this ministry. We’ve created these resources for them to learn about their responsibilities as counselors. Please have them read this Counselor Guidebook carefully before coming to camp.

23 SoCal Winter Camp Theme Recrafted

About the Winter Camp Theme

We live in a world that tries to define what it means to be a Christian. Some people claim that being Christian means you prayed a prayer one time. Others argue that you went from being a bad person to a good person. Ultimately, the Bible tells us exactly what it means to be a Christian, and it involves so much more than just those things. In reality, becoming a Christian means that God has brought us from death to life and He alone is the one that does this. As a result, we are no longer the ones who live, but Christ lives in us. As we study Ephesians 4:17-32, we hope to understand what it means to truly live in light of this transformation. This winter we are going to look at what it means to go from death to life through Christ and how our lives should reflect that life-changing transformation.

Spiritual Direction

We will dive into Ephesians 4 as we look at what it means to live a completely transformed life as a result of knowing Christ.

Visual Direction

We will use a series of short-form videos with the analogy of a Craftsman and four different crafts to show how He transforms, refortifies, and repurposes His creations.

Theme Verse

2 Corinthians 5:17-19

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
