Firefighters For Christ International Event (Click for Hume Lake's Firefighter's Retreat)
March 27-29, 2019 - Hume Lake Christian Camps
This year’s International Event will once again be held prior to the Firefighters Retreat at Hume Lake Christian Camps. Last year we extended this event by one additional day and received such a positive response we’re gonna do it again. Plan to arrive Wednesday afternoon and we will have activities through Friday afternoon. (Hume Lake Firefighters Retreat begins Friday evening). Spouses are welcome, but individuals are also encouraged to attend. Phil Scott, from Northern Ireland, will be speaking at our chapel meetings. This is a great opportunity to meet FFC folks from across the nation or around the world.
The cost of program, meals, and lodging for this extended two days prior to Hume’s Firefighter Retreat is only $120 per person.

The Firefighters For Christ International Event (Wednesday - Friday) is separate from the Hume Lake Firefighter’s Retreat (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). You can register for both events through Hume Lake Registration. This can be done by calling (800) 965-4863 or (559) 305-7770. We would encourage you to attend both…the extra two days really extends your weekend. If you are traveling from out-of-state, or International, please contact Pat Stilson for assistance with registration and lodging.
Hume Lake is located 65 miles east of Fresno in the Sequoia National Forest. This time of year snow is possible and should be anticipated. For those flying, the closest airport is Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT). Other major airports are Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO). The drive from either Los Angeles or San Francisco is about 5 hours.
From Northern California: Take CA-99 South to CA-180 East, veer right on Hume Lake Rd.
From Southern California: Take I-5 North to CA-99 North, exit CA-198 East, exit Plaza Dr. (first exit) and head North. Plaza Dr. becomes Rd. 80/Alta, continue North. At the end of Alta turn right on American Ave, then left at Cove Ave. At the end of Cove turn right on CA-180. Veer right on Hume Lake Rd. Warning: Some mapping may suggest CA-198 to CA-245. This is much longer, very winding, and NOT recommended.
Note: While driving on CA-180, you will pass through Kings Canyons National Park kiosk before you veer right on Hume Lake Road. Your Hume registration will allow direct passage through the park without having to pay the park entrance fee, however, if you have never seen the Giant Sequoias, the park admission fee is well worth a short detour to walk though the Grant Grove.
