Cabin BekeThe Global Youth Village international summer camp is located on 50 rolling acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia.   We are 10 miles outside of the town of Bedford.

GYV has lush woodlands and provides a peaceful and safe natural setting. Hiking trails, streams, a pond, organic flower and vegetable gardens foster new relationships with nature.

Participants share a wood frame cabin with 10 other youth and an adult staff member.  Bathrooms and showers are centrally located near the cabins in the girls’ and boys’ areas.  Temperatures can range from 62  degrees F to 103 degrees F during the day (17 degrees Celsius at night to 40 degrees Celsius during the day).

U.S. participants may fly in to airports in Roanoke, 38 miles West or to Lynchburg, 35 miles East. Or you can meet up with the Internationals who will fly into Washington, DC.   From there, we arrange for coach service to Bedford.  Driving directions are available for parents who want to bring their child by car.
