Camp for Ages 8-11
Why choose Wagon Train?
The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do.
About the Wagon Train Theme
This summer we want students to understand the heart and character of God. In a world with so many different ideas and opinions about what God is like, we want to take students straight to the source to see the truth about who God is as shown to us in Scripture. Join us for an exciting journey through the story of the Exodus and see how God shows Himself to His people through His word, His actions, and the promises He keeps.
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshiped.
Ministry Update – Summer 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the current state and local regulations impacting Fresno County, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel all children, youth, and adult events for the summer of 2020. If you need more information, please contact our Registration Team.
We know this may have a profound impact on you and on the ministry at Hume. And yet, even in our disappointment, we continue to trust the Lord. It is a remarkable blessing to see how He transforms lives here at camp, but we also know our God is bigger than this. He can do indescribable things in the hearts of those who look to Him, no matter what the circumstances. He is faithful! If we can trust Jesus with our eternity, we can surely trust Him with our today!
Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for kids age 8-11 years old, entering 3rd through 6th grades. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagon, learning Archery and BB guns, riding canoes and kayaks around the pond and exploring Fort Logan (our three-story island fort).
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Camp-wide recreation games like Capture the Flag, the Water Carnival and our awesome night game Stampede will have you talking about camp for years to come. You’ll also sit around a campfire singing worship songs, memorize scripture, watch amazing skits about the Bible performed by the Wagon Train staff and hear each morning and evening the Good News of Jesus and his love for us. We almost forgot to mention: D&G tag, Chipmunk rappelling rock, Trading Post, and a tree house fit for a king: Burnside Manor. You’ll experience all this and more, like great food, friends and fun.
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!

Wagon Train is a closed camp. This is for the safety and enjoyment of every camper. We ask that family and friends not visit during the week. If necessary, parents may schedule a proper meeting with their child by contacting the Administration Office and making arrangements.
