What is Capernaum?
Begun in San Jose, Calif., in 1986, Young Life Capernaum Ministries is a program of Young Life especially for kids and young adults with disabilities (ages 14-22).
Young people with disabilities — like their able-bodied peers — have hopes and dreams, needs and fears; but, many of them feel isolated and have no one to share their struggles with and no one to encourage them and help them be all God designed them to be. Young Life Capernaum helps fill the void many of these young people face. Capernaum gives kids and young adults with disabilities the chance to have fun, make friends, develop self-esteem and begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Capernaum Camping

Capernaum gives young people with disabilities an unforgettable and life-changing experience at camp. With one-on-one help and attention from their Young Life leaders, at a top-notch camp in picturesque surroundings, these young people get to do as many of the camp activities as possible. Horseback riding, navigating through a ropes course and riding a zipline are amoung these exciting adventures. 

Capernaum Leaders

Young Life Capernaum leaders are caring people who strive to provide what every young person needs, especially those with disabilities — a life filled with love, support, excitement and challenge. These trained leaders spend time with their Capernaum friends, modeling the love of Jesus Christ at weekly club meetings, special events and on camp trips — helping young people with disabilities discover their ability to do new things and to be all God designed them to be.
