Ready to ski at the Winter Getaway.

Asian Young Life invites those of you who attended AYL Club during the 2017-18 school year or the Freshman Frolic/Harvesters Hangout on November 9 to join us on our WINTER GETAWAY. We’ll be going to Young Life’s Lake Champion and to nearby Big Bear Ski Resort where we will enjoy a weekend of unforgettable memories and experiences.  

We’ll be leaving afterschool on Friday, Feb. 9, and you’ll be home around 6:30 PM on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 11. We have 141 spots, but they tend to go VERY FAST, so register now!

DEPARTURE TIME AND PLACE:  We will be leaving on Friday, February 9, but the exact departure time and place varies depending on what school you attend:  

  • If you are an A@E student, please bring your luggage to school and leave it in Ms. Meltzer's MIDI lab next to the music room. The bus will pick you up in front of the auditorium at 3:30 PM.

Plus, if you pay with a credit card, you can save an additional $5, lowering the price to only $194! (Please note: If you do NOT have health insurance, you will need to pay an additional $15.)

Winter Getaway Details

We want to help you to experience life and to develop meaningful friendships.  At Lake Champion, we will have time to play in the gymnasium and game room, enjoy the hot tub and other activities, we’ll have our very own AYL club meeting, cabin time to talk about life, plus a ping pong tournament, a boys basketball tournament, and more! On Saturday we will go to Big Bear Ski Resort where we can ski or snowboard all day!  (And if you’ve never skied or snowboarded before, that’s OK because lessons are included in the price!)

Parents, we want your child to have an amazing but safe experience. Supervision at the Getaway includes local adult leaders who also work as local public school teachers. The overall ratio of adult supervision to teens is 1:10.  Male and female housing at the camp is clearly defined, separated, and chaperoned. Students are closely monitored at all times. In addition, a fully licensed EMT will accompany us to the camp and be with us at the ski resort as well. Furthermore, at the ski resort, we require all students to wear helmets, and all snowboarders are required to wear wrist guards as well. In addition, if your child is a beginner, he or she must take free lessons provided by the Big Bear Ski School instructors. Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our young people are our first priorities.  

We will be staying overnight at Young Life's Lake Champion, located at 247 Mohican Lake Rd. in Glen Spey, NY 12737.  The camp’s phone number is (845) 856-6871. We will also be skiing/snowboarding at Big Bear Ski Resort, located in Lackawaxen, PA. We will be driving to the Getaway in motor coach buses provided by Campbell Tours of Slippery Rock, PA.
