HOW DO I OBTAIN AN ANIMAL ONESIE?
It has become a tradition for many AYL Winter Getaway participants to wear an "animal onesie" (kigurumi) while skiing/snowboarding. This is totally optional and is NOT required, but if you are interested in continuing this tradition, please go to aylpingpong.com (COMING SOON!), where you can select an animal onesie and complete other important information.

Check out our Facebook Event Page​ to see who else is going or to invite any of your friends. Your friends should be Bergen County high school students who attended any AYL club in 2018, the Freshman Frolic in November 2018, or Saranac or Capernaum in summer 2017 or 2018.


WHAT ABOUT SAFETY AND SUPERVISION?
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 Shawnee Mountain Ski School instructors. Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our young people are our first priorities.  


WHERE IS THE WINTER GETAWAY, AND HOW WILL WE GET THERE?
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 Shawnee Mountain Ski Area​, located in East Stroudsburg, PA. We will be driving to the Getaway in motor coach buses provided by Campbell Tours of Slippery Rock, PA.


HOW MANY SPOTS ARE LEFT?
As of November 3, we have 155 spots remaining. Go to our Facebook Event Page​​ to see who is already registered.
