HUME LAKE 2017!

Once again we will make the awesome trek to Hume Lake!  This is an amazing trip and we are so glad that you are thinking about attending with us.  We are going to Hume July 30th - August 5th, 2016.  

Once there, plan on having the most amazing week of your life!  Every year is just gets better and better!   This trip is for any one that will be in High School in the Fall of 2017.  We would love to have super seniors attend too!

Departure and Arrival Details

We will be having check in time at SunHouse at 4:30 am on July 30th.  We understand that this is early and encourage students to sleep on the bus. We were fortunate to be able to partner and travel with The River Church of the South Bay and will be meeting them in Torrance, CA on our way to Hume. We expect to arrive at Hume Lake between 2:30-3pm.

We will be returning to SunHouse August 5th between 5pm -7pm. These times might change depending on traffic and we will give students updates on our return time to tell parents. You can also call our SunHouse Return Hotline at 858-729-5543. A SunHouse leader will update this hotline as soon as we regain cell service on our ride home and will be updated if our estimated time of arrival changes.

Pack like a pro tips:

  • Lotion - it can be dry and this can make a big comfort difference.  
  • Bug spray - lotions and stick repellants work better than sprays. 
  • Water Bottle - A good plastic water bottle will make camp even better!  Dehydration leads to headaches, fatigue and in some cases, throwing up and getting sick!  Please write your name on it.
