Winter Getaway Info

 

We are so glad you are attending this year's WINTER GETAWAY! Here is some important information for you regarding this year's trip!


​DEPARTURE TIME AND PLACE​
We will be leaving on Friday, February 15, but the exact departure time and place varies depending on what school you attend:  

MOST SCHOOLS: Most students from most schools (A@E, BCA, BT, Hasbrouck Heights, Leonia, Palisades Park, Paramus, River Dell, etc.) should meet at 11:45 AM at East Bergen Christian Church at 320 Beverly Rd, Teaneck, NJ 07666.  This is the same place where we have AYL club. Please eat lunch before boarding the bus!

TENAFLY HIGH SCHOOL: If you are a Tenafly High School or Tenafly Harvesters student, the bus will pick you up at approximately 12:30 PM near the Harvesters House at 54 Columbus Dr, Tenafly, NJ  07670. In the morning before school, please take your luggage to the Harvesters House (54 Columbus Dr, Tenafly, NJ). Please note:  Brian Shin, Christian Lee, Penelope Om, and Phoebe Om should also meet at this location for the Tenafly bus. Please eat lunch before boarding the bus!​

 ​​

IMPORTANT SCHEDULE INFORMATION  
We will be going to Shawnee Mountain Ski Area FIRST on Friday, February 15, directly after we board the buses. We will NOT be stopping for food along the way, so please make sure you eat lunch before boarding the bus on Friday.

Also, since we will be going to the ski resort first, make sure you carry your ski/snowboard clothes (e.g., snowpants, animal onesie, goggles, etc.) with you on to the bus and not underneath with the rest of your luggage.

You do NOT have to bring bed linens, pillows, or a sleeping bag.  All ski/snowboard equipment (skis/snowboard, boots, helmet) will be provided and is included in the price, so you don’t need to bring your own (but you can if you want to).

RETURN TIME AND LOCATION  

IMPORTANT POLICIES  
  • Always stay in control while skiing/snowboarding, stay on trails consistent with your ability, and never ski/board alone. 
  • Absolutely NO alcohol, e-cigarettes/juul, hookah, or illegal drugs are permitted. You won’t need them to have fun this weekend! Please leave them at home.  If you bring any such items to camp, we will notify your parents.​

HOW CAN I SELECT MY PING PONG PARTNER?
Every year at Winter Getaway, almost everyone will be participating in our Doubles Ping Pong Tournament. It’s all for fun, so don’t worry if you are not that good at ping pong. Please select your ping pong partner at aylpingpong.com. You can see a list of everyone going by clicking here​.


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 aylonesiecrew.com​ or click the orange button below. At this site, you can select an animal onesie and complete other important information.


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 Big Bear 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.
