Summer 2023 Theme Coming Soon!
Hume’s creative themes are a practical link between the fun aspects of camp and the clear biblical teaching.
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!

A doctor and a nurse is provided for each week of camp and there is a volunteer fire dept on-site with two on-call EMT staff daily. There is a fully-stocked First Aid station with 24 hour access to counselors. A registered nurse administers and ensures all daily medications are given to campers.
There is no cell reception at Hume Lake or pay phone at Wagon Train. There is only access to a phone for Church business and Emergencies. Campers are not allowed to make non-emergency calls during their week at camp.
The Trading Post supplies only crafts and snacks for purchase during freetime 2-5pm daily. It does not supply camper personal items. These are available in the General Store in Main Camp if forgotten.
Money for additional snacks and crafts may be added to the camper account through the registration page. All camp activities are included at no additional cost.
At Wagon Train, you can expect warm days and cool nights. Days are a bit warmer in July and August. Nights are a bit more chilly in June and late August. It rarely rains.
Each wagon has ten beds, and each bed has a personal shelf. There are four large areas underneath each wagon for luggage storage.
