Capernaum

Scan 2.jpegEvery summer Asian Young Life takes about a dozen teenagers to help out at Capernaum camp, a special place  in Virginia for young people with disabilities. 
Our volunteers from Asian Young Life serve as "buddies" to the young people with special needs in the hope of giving these Capernaum campers the "best week of their life." Our Asian Young Life teens assist the Capernaum campers in getting around camp, participating in camp activities, and basically just helping in anyway possible so that the Capernaum campers can overcome obstacles, grow in confidence, and experience life to the full. The days can be long (Expect to work 12+ hours each day!), and you will have to become "comfortable being uncomfortable," but once you get the hang of it, you may go home more blessed than the people you are serving. In fact, many of our volunteers say that helping out at Capernaum camp was the best week of their life. 

At the conclusion of your week, Asian Young Life will credit and certify you with 50 hours of community service. We just ask that you work hard at the camp and that you serve the Capernaum campers to the best of your ability.

Each summer, there are usually more students who want to volunteer at Capernaum than there are spots available; as a result, the opportunity to serve at Capernaum is competitive. AYL leaders will take into consideration a student's commitment and involvement in AYL throughout the school year in trying to determine who should serve on each summer's mission team. 

There is a prerequisite that you must have attended Saranac camp first to understand how YL camping works. If you're interested, please let any AYL leader know, and we'll be in touch.
