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.

We are so excited to announce that this summer Goochland will be returning to Saranac Village in Upstate New York! We are looking forward to kids having the best week of their lives, making lifelong memories with friends and hearing about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are sure that this year will be just as unforgettable and life giving as years past, and we would love for your child to be a part of it.

Here are some details regarding the trip this summer: 

WHERE? Saranac Village is located in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of New York, with
top‐notch accommodations, unbelievable food and an atmosphere unlike any other.

WHEN? Camp dates are July 30 ‐ August 7. We will leave from Goochland High School at 11 p.m. on July 30, and arrive back in Goochland at 2 a.m. on August 7.

WHAT IS THERE TO DO? The waterfront at Saranac has the best equipment money can buy, complete with two Air Nautique boats, a Ski Nautique, two commercial parasail boats, and a whole fleet of Hobie Cat sailboats. That means while at Saranac you can tube, wakeboard, water ski, parasail, sail, hang out at the floating dock and enjoy the water slide and other water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing. All of this can be enjoyed on the clear mountain waters of Upper Saranac Lake. And, there is just as much, if not more, to do on land: the ropes course, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, an 18-hole Frisbee golf course, soccer fields and beach volleyball. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more low‐key, you can visit the game room, hot tub, brand new craft shack, the camp store or hang out in the hammocks on the beach.

HOW MUCH? $850. You can save a spot by turning in your $200 NON- REFUNDABLE deposit with your camp form. (The deposit is refundable up to April 27th.) There are a limited number of spots, so please turn in your camp form and deposit ASAP! 

Multiple opportunities for fundraising and getting financial help will be available. Please ask a Young Life leader for more information and stay up to date on all fundraising opportunities by checking this blog! Checks can be made out to “Young Life.” You can mail checks and forms to Goochland Young Life at PO Box 1221, Goochland VA 23063. You can also give checks and forms to your Young Life Leader.
