ALL students MUST register online. This will make sure there is still a spot for you, and it will determine how much you have to pay. Click the ORANGE button below to register now.

When you complete the online registration above, you will be provided a link to pay online. If you no longer have that link, please click the BLUE button below to submit an online credit card or debit card payment now. If you are​ planning to pay with cash or a check, do NOT click the blue button, but instead please give your payment directly to any AYL leader. Please pay by Tuesday, May 22, to avoid a late penalty.

If you already completed Step 1 ("Register Online"), but you do not know how much you owe, please call/TXT us at (201) 777-0-AYL (0295), and we will be glad to assist you.

Many students already submitted their health forms prior to March 1, so for most of you, Step 3 does not apply. But if you did NOT submit your health form yet, we will need to get that from you as soon as possible.

The instructions for filling out the health form differ depending on whether you are a first time camper at Saranac ("1st Timer") or a repeat camper ("2nd Timer"). To download the instructions for filling out the health form, please click the ORANGE button if you are a freshman or first time camper at Saranac; click the BLUE button below if you are a repeat camper.

If you are a first time camper at Saranac, but you have a brother or sister who has attended Saranac before, we have a special set of instructions for you. Please download these special instructions.

The Best Week of Your Life

The view of Saranac from the waterfront beach.
In August 2017, Asian Young Life took 92 high school students and leaders to Saranac Village, an incredible resort-style camp for teenagers in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. Simply put, the week was unbelievable.

For those of you who missed out, don't worry... We'll be doing it again in Summer 2018! If you are an Asian American high school student who has attended Asian Young Life during the 2017-18 school year, then you should get a few of your friends and do whatever you have to do to get to this place! You will have the BEST WEEK OF YOUR LIFE. You'll be spending 7 days at one of the most incredible places on the planet!

Imagine a week of parasailing, waterskiing, tubing, wakeboarding, a hot tub, a 100-foot long water slide, basketball, frisbee, ping pong... plus beautiful scenery, great food, good friends, and amazing memories. You’ll also learn about God and His love for humanity. Trust us... this is no ordinary camp experience! Join us!​

A Picture Is Worth a ​Thousand Words

​$329 for freshmen and for 1st Timers in any grade who submitted their health form by March 1.

$429 for all 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Timers who submitted their health form by March 1.

Students who attend Tenafly High School are eligible for reduced pricing. Please talk to your AYL leader for details.

Please note there is a $10 discount if you pay with a credit or debit card!

These fees cover everything: 7 days of meals and all activities, 6 nights of lodging, and roundtrip motorcoach bus transportation.


Please note: Spots for this trip are limited to students who attend schools or groups where we have active adult leaders. We will be accepting registration from students in the following schools/groups only:

• Academies @ Englewood (42 spots)
• Tenafly High School (28 spots)
• CCCNJ (14 spots)
• Other Schools (4 spots)

Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. If you attend a school where we do not have assigned leaders, help us recruit adult leaders so you and your friends can go to Saranac!

Furthermore, students from these schools/groups must have actively participated in Asian Young Life during the 2017-18 school year. ​

Be assured that student safety is our top priority and that we want your child to have the best week of his or her life.

Supervision at camp includes local adult teachers/leaders who already know your child and who "go through" camp with their teenage guests, overseeing and experiencing the same activities that the students do. Furthermore, there is a property staff of over 40 additional adult workers, including a camp physician and an EMT, who live on the camp premises. ​The overall ratio of adult supervision to teenagers is about 1:7. In addition, male and female housing is clearly defined, separated, and chaperoned. As a Christian organization, we also help teenagers learn about God, but we do so in a way that protects every child's right and ability to make his or her own decision regarding faith issues.

For additional information, please visit the official Saranac Village website, where you can learn about the camp, the facilities, and the incredible surroundings.

If you have any unanswered questions, pleas​e call/TXT our office at (201) 777-0-AYL or email us. We are certain that your child will have an incredible experience, and we do not want your son or daughter to miss out!
