In Young Life Capernaum, we believe young people with disabilities have the right to experience the abundant life God intended for them.  This includes meaningful relationships, fun, adventure and acceptance.  We believe teens and young adults with special needs can and should participate fully in activities that build self-esteem, challenge their limits and help them discover their abilities to do new things.  And, we believe that all adolescents and young adults deserve the opportunity to explore a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

CLUB and Camp

Capernaum Club - A twice monthly meeting for high school age friends with special needs (ages 14-22).  Club is an evening full of crazy fun, laughter and building relationships with Capernaum leaders.  A message from the bible is shared each evening, helping our high school friends learn about who God is, why Jesus came to earth and how much He loves us. Club meets at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, youth room, from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. For specific dates, please reference the calendar.

Capernaum Beyond - A twice monthly club meeting and event for Capernaum friends who have already graduated from high school (ages 22**-26).  Capernaum Beyond, just like Capernaum, is filled with fun and fellowship, but is oriented for our friends as they become young adults. At the end of each club, everyone breaks up into small groups to process the message of God's love for us and how to live a life for Christ.  Club meets the second Monday every month at Catalina Foothills Church, youth group room, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. as well as a social outing once a month. For specific dates, please reference the calendar. For questions, contact Frank Vidal at 520-390-1000.

Friends For Life - A ministry of the Journey Church, FFL is for adults (ages 26 and above) with disabilities. FFL mets two Thursdays a month at the Joruney in Upper F from 6:30-8:00pm. For more information, please contact Genetta Holt, genettah@msn.com.

**If your child graduates at the age of 18, please talk to Katie or another leader about the best club option for your child.
