Volunteer This Fall!

Fall 2020

As you know, things are a bit different at Hume this fall. The good news? The Lord has made it possible for us to shine His light in wonderful ways, even in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Here’s where we’d love your help:

1. Fall at Hume

We’re opening our lodges and cabins to families and couples this fall! Families will come up the mountain to worship, hear the Word, and spent time playing together in God’s creation. It’s going to be a refreshing and restorative time for many.

1. Weekend Retreats

We’re running several weekends for various groups (following COVID guidelines): men’s retreat, women’s retreats, pastors retreat, father-daughter retreat, and marriage retreats. 

2. Showing the love of Christ to the General Public

We are seeing many very satisfied “public” (people not attending one of our camps) visiting our Snack Shop, General Store, Hume Supply Company (Gift Shop), Boat House, and Dining Hall. We want to shine the light of Jesus among many.

So… we need help!

We want to make this fall an oasis for our guests, and we need volunteers to help. We want to serve all who God brings to His camp, keeping things open, fun, and Christ-centered. Interested?

Here are the details

  • Volunteers will have their housing and meals provided while on site.
  • Volunteers should expect 6-8 hours of service each day.
  • Volunteers must be 18 and older OR accompanied by an adult.
  • Volunteers under 14 must have their parent’s supervision while working.
  • Each volunteer should bring a sleeping bag, pillow, sunscreen, work gloves, clothes that can get dirty, laundry soap if staying longer than a week, and a smile!
  • The types of work you will be doing while volunteering will depend on the area you are working in but will generally include standing for long periods of time, lifting items up to 25 pounds, and other physically demanding activities.

Sound good? Please Fill out our interest form!

If you have a servant’s heart and don’t mind working hard, then come join us for Volunteer Week. You will work alongside our full-time staff to prepare the camp for Summer. The week also includes a special evening program, housing, meals, and plenty of work to keep you busy and even make you a little tired by the end.

In addition to hard workers who can help build, repair, clean and organize, we’re looking for specialists in areas such as carpentry, roofing, decking, painting, and stagecraft who can come volunteer their time.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity as volunteers of all walks of life come together to invest in each other and Hume Lake. You will be challenged and inspired as we work hard for the glory of God.

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!

Check in starts at 3:00 PM the first day of the retreat.

You need to be checked out of your lodging by 11:00 AM the last day of the retreat.

We provide:

Dinner the first day of the retreat

All meals each full day of the retreat

Breakfast and lunch the last day of the retreat

We do not offer free guest WiFi at this point in time. We do offer Internet for a fee; however, the speeds here are not fast. Purchase at your own risk.

You’ll need to be 8-years-old or older to be part of one of our volunteer work teams.

Yes! Lodge rooms are available for a $75 fee covering the length of your stay (based on availability). 

Tree Removal Weekends

In the past several years, over 70 million trees across the Southern Sierra Nevada succumbed to a historic California drought. The widespread death was driven not only by record low rainfall, but by the rampant bark beetle infestations which feed on the dry, defenseless trees. On our Hume Lake property alone we have tallied over 4800 dead and hazardous trees.

You’ve already helped us remove 3000 dead trees from the Hume forest—THANK YOU!

Please help us as we move into “Phase 2” in removing the remaining 1800 dead trees from our beautiful camp!
