For High school + Middle School
And Virtually anyone who wants to relive those years at hume 🙂
When is Virtual Camp?
Virtual Camp premieres are over, but you can still experience all of it as an individual, with your family, or with your youth group on our Camp Kajabe page! Watch it over the course of a week, a month, or binge-watch it in a single day!
What is it?
Virtual Camp is similar to the online church format where you can join us for chapel sessions that recreate the Hume experience. Whether you’re at home or meeting with your church youth group, we’re bringing Hume to you! With chapels hosted by our Camp Directors, you’ll get to participate in worship, watch theme videos, and hear from Hume speakers. Our heart is to serve you and your youth group to the best of our ability during this unique time.

During this unique time, our goal with Virtual Camp is to bring the Hume camp experience to the local church through an online platform.
Depending on your county/state regulations, Virtual Camp can be experienced either by an individual student at home, as a family, with your small group, or as a youth group at church. Virtual Camp can be viewed on your phone, computer, or even on the big screen! Another part of the Virtual Camp experience is our social media recreation challenges. Be sure to check our Instagram @humelake throughout the Virtual Camp week to find out the #HumeRecChallenge of the day!
Virtual Camp is aimed at middle school, high school, and young adults. That said, we think you’ll love this at virtually any age! (See what we did there?)
We do think you should use your discretion if you have children in elementary school and younger as the material may not resonate.
YES! On August 2, we open up the corral gates and let loose Wagon Train at the Homestead! We provide six days-worth of media (with theme skits, teaching from Wagonmaster Chip, and more) for you to ride the range at whatever pace you desire! Once a night? Once a week? You decide!
And yes, this is also FREE. 🙂
Tune in at 7:00 PM every night from Sunday, July 12th through Thursday, July 16th for our chapel sessions! Then, after each session check Instagram @humelake for our daily social media recreation challenges!
Using the Church Online Platform, we are releasing the Virtual Camp chapel sessions each night at 7:00 PM from Sunday, July 12, through Thursday, July 16.
Chapel sessions are about 40 minutes long. There is one chapel session released per day for a total of five sessions throughout the week of Virtual Camp. Our hope is that students watch each Virtual Camp session and then engage in a time of “cabin discussion” with their church youth groups, small group leaders, or families. Depending on state/county regulations, these “cabin discussions” may be done virtually or in-person.
Depending on state/county regulations, some youth groups may gather together and others may be participating online. We hope that youth pastors, small group leaders, families, and students can be creative throughout the week of Virtual Camp!
Here are some ideas:
Use the “Register Today!” button on this page! Once you have completed the form, you will then receive an email confirming your registration. Once Virtual Camp is all ready to go, you will receive another email with a link to the Church Online Platform to view each chapel session every night at 7:00 PM from Sunday, July 12, through Thursday, July 16.
Nope, it’s absolutely FREE! 🙂
By registering, it means you will soon be sent a link to the Church Online Platform that will host our Virtual Camp. If you are planning on experiencing Virtual Camp together as a youth group, you only need to register once. Students can register individually and then they will receive the Church Online Platform link as well. Whether you’re watching from church or home, our hope is that many students, families, and youth ministries are able to experience our Virtual Camp week, ultimately allowing the gospel to be heard!
The topical seminars are in video format and will appear on the Virtual Camp webpage during the week of Virtual Camp. We hope these seminars serve as resources that promote further discussion among students, small group leaders, youth pastors, and families.
About the Virtual “Camp Kajabe” Theme
During this unique season, our goal with Camp Kajabe is to cultivate a greater affection for, and a greater priority of, the local church. On the surface, this theme might just seem like theological pillars of the church (covenant of redemption, gospel, mission, spiritual gifts, heaven), which in many ways is true. However, our heart is that you will hear of God’s love for the church and for you in the gospel. We pray the natural outcome is a passion that leads you to proclaim Christ to the corners of the globe, using your gifting in the body of Christ, and an excitement for the church’s destiny of heaven.
“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.”

Christopher is a teaching pastor at North Coast Church and also pastors the young adult ministry. His passion is seeing lives changed from a new identity in Christ. His commitment to doctrinally sound Bible teaching mixed with his challenging and energetic style makes his messages something that people from all walks of life can engage in.

As a worship leader, Caity Jean Ardavanis’ heart is that the students would understand the truth that they are singing. She is passionate about communicating the gospel through song, word, and deed. She is eager to use God’s Word to share that we do not worship God solely through songs and melodies, but by offering our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to Him. This is our true and proper worship (Rom.12:1). Leading worship alongside students is one of her greatest joys.

Temitope (Teh-ME-toh-PEH) is a worship project based out of San Diego. The name, originating from the Yorùbá tribe, means “mine is praise” which is the heartbeat of this project. Every lyric, every melody and every note is offered as a praise offering to God. Temitope “Tobi” Peters is the son of Nigerian and British immigrants. He earnestly prays that through exercising his gift of music, he helps soften hearts to what the Spirit of God wants to do in and through the people of God today.

For All Seasons
Our hearts are simple: We desire to live a life of worship throughout every circumstance. We want to live out the Gospel both on and off stage. We want to be a people who continuously choose joy. We don’t want to be wavered by the things of this world. We want to stand firm in who we are in Christ. We want to worship Jesus not for what He offers but for who He is.
