While all Young Life activities are open to every student, many areas have dedicated programs for students and young adults with special needs, typically referred to as Young Life Capernaum. Capernaum leaders model Christ's unconditional love and acceptance. They have the privilege of walking with our Capernaum students on their spiritual journey and learning just who God 
made them to be. Students that are involved with Capernaum experience fun and adventure, develop fulfilling friendships, and challenge their limits while building self-esteem through club, camp, and other exciting activities. 

Capernaum "Club" takes place every other Wednesday night during the school year at Calvin College. Club lasts about an hour where we sing songs that everyone knows, play games that are talked about throughout the rest of the week, and close the night with a message from one of our leaders about the Good News of Jesus. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Team Leaders: Ashley Havemeier.
