Camp for Ages 8-11
Summer 2021 Registration open
Why choose Wagon Train?
The gospel isn’t merely one ingredient in our programming mix. It’s the reason for everything we do.
2021 COVID Update
Amidst the many difficulties and challenges of this past year, we are hopeful and excited about what the Lord has in store for 2021. We are working and planning towards summer 2021, and we are glad to announce that registration is open.
As we get closer to the start of camp in the months to come, we’ll keep you informed on the specifics of our COVID-19 related safety modifications and protocols designed to keep you and your students safe here at camp.
While we all continue to face the challenges and difficulty of navigating and planning for an unknown future, we place our trust in the Lord, and the Truths we find in His Word, knowing that He Sovereign. And we pray that Jesus would bring a renewed refreshment to your soul this year, as we look forward to seeing you here at Hume this summer.
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.

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!
