A note about COVID-19 and Young Life Summer Camp

Camp is NOT cancelled. 

Due to the current state of the mission regarding COVID-19, Young Life made the difficult decision to not host any of it's traditional national camping weeks this summer.  However, our team is hard at work dreaming up plans so kids in Santa Barbara can still have the best week this summer. 

Here is our SBYL Summer Camp Plan:

  1. We are going to host our own summer camp (or camp-like event) for your kids.**
  2. We have space reserved at Camp Gilmore-Salvation Army Camp in Malibu, CA, and if we are allowed to have groups larger than 50 in July we will host camps on these dates: High School: July 10-14,  Junior High: July 7-9
  3. We may have multiple high school or junior high trips that run at the same time if we need to limit the size of our gatherings.
  4. Our Capernaum Camp option will consist of Day Camp Adventures in Santa Barbara July 27, 28, and 29.


As we know more, we will update information so you can make the best decision possible for your family.  If you have questions, concerns, or interest in helping please contact us.

**Young Life is committed to meeting three requirements (adhering to city/state/national guidelines) before hosting any events or camps this summer:

  1. There are no bans on group gatherings that would limit our ability to hold camp.
  2. There are no travel restrictions throughout the U.S. and Canada.
  3. We determine we can meet our high standards for health and safety at camp.
