The Best Week of Your Life!
In August 2019, Asian Young Life took 100 high school students and leaders to SARANAC VILLAGE, an incredible resort-style camp for teenagers in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. Simply put, the week was unbelievable.
For those of you who missed out, don’t worry... We're doing it again in Summer 2020! If you are an Asian American high school student who has attended Asian Young Life during the 2019-20 school year, then you should get a few of your friends and do whatever you have to do to get to this place! You will have the BEST WEEK OF YOUR LIFE. You'll be spending 7 days at one of the most incredible places on the planet!
Imagine a week of parasailing, waterskiing, water tubing, wakeboarding, sailboats, a hot tub, basketball, volleyball, frisbee, ping pong... plus beautiful scenery, great food, good friends, and amazing memories. You'll also learn about God and His love for people. Trust us... this is no ordinary camp experience! Join us!

CAMP SPOTS INFORMATION
Please note: Spots for this trip are limited to students who attend schools or groups where we have active adult leaders. We will be accepting registration from students in the following schools/groups only:
Academies @ Englewood: 15 spots for 1st-Timers (all freshmen as well as 1st-time sophomores and juniors), 21 spots for seniors
Tenafly High School: 14 spots for 1st-Timers (all freshmen as well as 1st-time sophomores and juniors), 12 spots for seniors
River Dell High School: 13 spots
Other Schools: 2 spots
Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. If you attend a school where we do not have assigned leaders, help us recruit adult leaders so you and your friends can go to Saranac!
Be assured that student safety is our top priority and that we want your child to have the best week of his or her life.
Supervision at camp includes local adult teachers/leaders who already know your child and who go through camp with their teenage guests, overseeing and experiencing the same activities the students do. Furthermore, there is a property staff of over 40 additional adult workers, including a camp physician and an EMT, who live on the camp premises. The overall ratio of adult supervision to teenagers is about 1:7. In addition, male and female housing is clearly defined, separated, and chaperoned.
As a Christian organization, we also help teenagers learn about God, but we do so in a way that protects every child's right and ability to make his or her own decision regarding faith issues.
We are certain your child will have an incredible experience, and we do not want your son or daughter to miss out!
For additional information, please visit the official Saranac Village website, where you can learn about the camp, the facilities, and the incredible surroundings. If you have any unanswered questions, please call/TXT our office at (201) 777-0-AYL or email us.
