Young Life Capernaum gives young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the chance to experience fun and adventure, to develop fulfilling friendships and to challenge their limits while building self-esteem through club, camp and other exciting activities.
"At Young Life Capernaum my child experiences a deep feeling of belonging. He commonly says, 'These are my people.'" - a parent
We move through barriers that can accompany having disabilities, inviting people of all abilities to experience Young Life and be transformed by God's love.
Capernaum was started in 1986 as an outreach of Young Life to teens and young adults with disabilities. Since then, Young Life leaders have walked with kids and earned the right to be heard in an exhausting and exciting world.
Volunteer your time to work directly with young people.
Support the staff and leaders as part of the local adult committee.
Give resources to start or sustain the financial foundation at the local or national level.
