Location & Facilities


Nestled in the heart of the Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Monument, Hume Lake Christian Camp is an ideal location for solitude, reflection, and refreshment. Just as city lights diminish our ability to perceive the stars in the sky, so the routine expectations of daily life can cloud students’ ability to clearly see the calling God has placed on their lives. The Biblical precedent of removing oneself for a season in order to more clearly focus on the voice of God is obvious, and the Joshua Wilderness Institute provides just such a retreat. Plus, with almost immediate access to numerous backpacking trails, fishing streams, and Hume’s vast array of recreational options, students are seldom at a loss for things to do.

The Joshua Lodge itself provides students with elegant accommodations while at the same time retaining the warm touch and feel of home. Combining 28 deluxe student rooms (with two full size beds, desk, cedar dresser, closet, and individual bathroom), a full discipleship library, state of the art kitchen and dining room, classroom, three fireplaces, two laundry rooms, an inspirational Great room, and the best view at Hume Lake, the Lodge becomes the center of daily life and activity for our 56 students throughout the year. Our philosophy is that by presenting world class teaching, spectacular food, and comfortable housing in a beautiful mountain lodge surrounded by God’s breathtaking creation, students will be able to commune with their Creator in a way normally made impossible by the distraction of mediocrity.
