Great time at the 2015 Pig Roast!

Thanks to all our friends who came out for Goochland Young Life's 2015 Pig Roast! A stellar turnout of friends were on hand to hear Wes and Tate tell their stories of what Young Life has meant to them. And we're so grateful for how generously you responded to meet Goochland YL's financial needs! 

God is using Young Life in Goochland, and you're a vital part of that.
Be sure to ask Whit what he thinks of the song Roxanne!

Goochland is going to Saranac!

You may have heard your high school student talking about Young Life summer camp. We’d love to have them on the trip with us, so we wanted to share details directly with you and answer any questions you have.

WHERE?  Saranac Village is located in the beautiful Adirondack Mountain of New York. It's got top‐notch accommodations, unbelievable food and an atmosphere kids don’t want to leave. Some people say a trip to Saranac Village was the best week of their life!

WHEN? Camp dates are June 27 ‐ July 5. The chartered bus will leave from Goochland High School at 11 p.m., Saturday June 27, and arrive back in Goochland at 2 a.m. on 
Sunday July 5.

WHAT IS THERE TO DO? The waterfront at Saranac has ski boats and sailboats so kids can enjoy lots of water activities – they can tube, wakeboard, parasail, hang out at the floating dock and try out the water slide. There’s just as much to do on land: the ropes course, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, an 18 hole Frisbee golf course, soccer fields and volleyball. For something a little more low‐key, there’s a game room, a craft shack and hammocks on the beach.  See it for yourself in this YouTube video!

HOW MUCH? $765 (this is a NEW and LOWER cost!)  You can save a spot for your student by turning in a $200 NON- REFUNDABLE deposit with a camp form. There are a limited number of spots, so please turn in your camp form and deposit ASAP.  

FUNDRAISING?  Your student can take advantage of opportunities to raise money toward their camp costs. Information about specific fundraisers will be communicated with students, and we’ll post upcoming events to our blog as well.

NEXT STEPS? You can save a spot for your student by using the printed form your student received or click here to use the online form.

Checks need to be made out to “Young Life.” You can mail checks and forms to Goochland Young Life at PO Box 1221, Goochland VA 23063. Your student can also give checks and forms to any Young Life Leader.
QUESTIONS? Please contact Will Funk at (804) 922-7622 or

Want to help kids go to camp?

Then join us at Hope Thrift, from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 21, 2015!

That day, every penny you spend will go to Goochland County Younglife and Wyldlife camping fund, to help a high school or middle school student go to summer camp.

We’re so grateful to our friends at Hope Thrift -- this is the fourth year they’ve helped send Goochland kids to camp. And their support makes a big difference: thousands of dollars can be raised in a single Saturday.

So plan to shop for a good cause!  Join us at Hope Thrift, 11260 Patterson Avenue in the Tuckahoe Village Shopping Center. But first, be sure to share the date with family, friends, neighbors and with your church congregation.
