Organization Information

Mission Statement

Young people with disabilities -- like their able-bodied peers -- have hopes and dreams, needs and fears; but, many of them feel isolated and have no one to share their struggles with and no one to encourage them and help them be all God designed them to be. Young Life Capernaum helps fill the void many of these young people face. Capernaum gives kids and young adults with disabilities the chance to have fun, make friends, develop self-esteem and begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Description

Young Life Capernaum works to help individuals with disabilities experience all that life has to offer. We do this by providing accessible events and camps. We meet bi-weekly for "club" where we gather together to play games, sing songs and socialize. We also get together once or twice a month for other events, ranging from skiiing to hayrides. We also have a 5 day long overnight camp in the summer and a weekend overnight camp in the fall.
