As winter sets in and the temperatures begin to drop, Vail Valley Young Life is warming it up as they launch an opportunity for high school students in the valley. The youth organization has set the date for its 2015 summer camp, and registration begins Sunday. Participants can qualify for a $100 savings when registering on Sunday. Young Life will match up to $100 of your deposit that night.

“We have continued to see tremendous growth over the past three years through our summer camp opportunities,” said Ben Dodds, area director for Vail Valley Young Life. “Last year, we took 108 Young Life campers and leaders to northern Minnesota to experience ‘the best week of their life!’ This year, we are hoping to exceed 150 high school students from the Vail Valley as we attend Lost Canyon near Flagstaff, Arizona.”

Dodds said that Young Life leaders are what make the camps such a great experience. Men and women who volunteer for Young Life get the opportunity to walk alongside their young friends as they attend Young Life camp along with the students. They take off a week of work and plan in advance for special arrangements for their families all in hopes of providing a life-changing week for high school students in the valley.

“These trips fill up very fast and we want everyone to have the opportunity to attend,” Dodds said.

Registration kicks off on Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Basement in The Riverwalk of Edwards for upvalley students or at the Brush Creek Pavilion for Eagle Valley High School students.
