​Rockbridge is ​growing! Help us house more kids!

The Lord continues to bless the mission of Young Life with more kids who want to come to Rockbridge. In the past 25 years Rockbridge has grown to be the most-requested summer camp in the mission of Young Life as well as the second largest camp on a year-round basis. Rockbridge is filling up, and we need more beds to meet the increasing demand. What a great challenge! 

We’re in the final phase of building four new camper cabins at Rockbridge. Once all four are built, Rockbridge will be able to host 3,000 more campers and leaders each year. The first three cabins have been funded and are filled with campers and leaders! That’s worth celebrating, but we’re not done yet; we still hope to start construction of the fourth cabin this fall.

(This includes all anticipated design, engineering and construction costs, and project management expenses.)

Help us care for assigned staff and their families

Rockbridge has been a strategic part of the mission of Young Life for 25 years. Last summer alone, more than 4,100 kids experienced the “best week of their lives” at this unique camp in the Shenandoah Valley near Lexington, Virginia.

Each summer, Young Life staff, volunteers and their families serve at one of our camps for a month-long assignment, where they fill a variety of roles including speaking, leading music and shepherding high school and college-aged volunteers, all to prepare an environment where kids encounter Jesus.

We desire to better serve our teams and their families with an addition that will include three additional 400 square foot bedrooms and a remodeled first floor, which will include a 1,570 square foot great room, community kitchen, toddler play room and outdoor living space. These areas will provide additional housing for our growing assigned teams as well as much needed meeting space for fellowship and community building in both the summer and the school season, which is important to many of our non-Young Life guests.

Will you help us care for these generous assigned staff members serving at Rockbridge by improving the Assigned Staff lodge, their “home away from home?”​

​Camp Development Principles​

After construction is complete, Young Life camps are financially self-sufficient. All operational expenses, maintenance, administrative costs and funded depreciation are paid from camp revenue generated by the camper fee. Only major capital projects require fundraising after the initial purchase or construction. We only grow as thoughtful and generous gifts allow... 

Young Life camps have a long-standing policy to first raise the funds and then to develop new projects, facilities and ​amenities. This is so the camp fee that summer and school season guests pay is minimized to reflect true operating costs. This practice also allows us to develop new projects to a standard of excellence.
