Hume Lake Ponderosa Camp

Ponderosa is the flagship camp at Hume Lake for high school students.  At Ponderosa, you will hear the Gospel preached, be challenged through scripture, engage in awesome worship through music and get some time alone to process what God is doing in your life.  Hume Lake takes pride in its high energy recreation allowing kitds to be kids.

Please read the following information carefully and thoroughly.  Camp space is limited and it is critical that you follow the instructions carefully and meet all deadlines.
