[sat-l-ahyt] Something that is separated from something else but is nevertheless dependent on or controlled by it.

God is not merely a compartment of our lives; He IS our life (Acts 17:28). He influences everything and nothing is outside His control (Col 1:17). We are under His authority and utterly dependent upon Him (John 15:5). Everything He created is for His glory (Rev 4:11), and He is the only one worthy of our praise (Ps 145:3). Our next breath comes as a result of His grace (Is 42:5), and He has our good in mind no matter what circumstances may suggest (Rom 8:28).

    Upon graduating from Trinity Western University, Tom served as a youth pastor for 7 years at Cayucos Evangelical Free Church.  It was during that time he met and married his wife Julie.  He moved into education, teaching Bible, Drama, and English Literature at Fresno Christian High School and Makua Lani Christian Academy for 12 years.  Now serving at Hartland with their five boys, Tom and Julie's great joy continues to be engaging in the camp’s mission to boldly declare the life-saving and life-transforming truth of Jesus Christ found in God's Word.

  • Music: Bryan Easter

We have the unique opportunity to create a setting that fosters spiritual, relational, and personal growth.  Your dress can help or hinder that goal so please be modest.  While this list does not include every imaginable article of clothing or fashion trend, here are some guidelines to help you keep everyone's best interests in mind.

  • Tops end where bottoms begin.  Your midriff belongs behind one or the other.
  • Underwear belongs UNDER your other clothes.  Don't go showing it off.
  • Sleepwear is for sleeping in.  Please don't wear your jammies around camp.
  • Yoga pants are for doing yoga in.  Save the tight-fitting pants/shorts for the gym back home or cover them with a long shirt.
  • And as ironic as it may sound, the longer the shorts the better.  At least fingertip length, please.

That about “covers” it - please do likewise (pun intended).


Hartland is very isolated and there are no gasoline stations nearby. Make sure you fill up before you come up the mountain. If you are coming through Visalia, the last place to buy gas is in Lemon Cove. If you are coming from the North, the last place will be in Fresno.

 Note to Parents
 Directions to Hartland


It is our desire to provide a fun, yet safe, environment for each camper. In order to accomplish this, a Registered Nurse is on-site and available 24-hours-a-day to assist with medical emergencies, first-aid, and administration of medications. Please ensure that medical forms are filled out completely. All campers' medications must be in their original containers, labeled with name and clear instructions.
Medications should then be placed in one labeled zip-lock bag per individual. These bags are to be turned in to the nurse upon check-in.

How it works

Our part:
We supply masters for the brochure, registration form, confirmation notice, medical form, etc. that you will need to register and confirm your campers. You will receive a reduction in camp fees for each camper. The individual camp fee for Jr. High Winter Camp is $210, so that means you pay only $180 if you qualify for the group registration discount. While the goal of providing the group discount is a minimum group of seven campers, we are flexible and more than willing to work with smaller churches or groups who may have fewer than seven campers.

Your Part:
  1) You decide how many camper spots you want to reserve and submit your request below.
  2) You secure the spots by signing a contract and making a deposit of $35 per camper
  3) You collect the completed registration cards and money from your campers.
  4) You give the campers the confirmation information, medical forms, etc.
  5) You supply one counselor for every 7 campers.
  *There is no charge for the counselors to attend camp.
  6) You give Hartland the completed forms and one check for the balance of the fees due.
