Center Information

Sleeping Quarters: This is not an air conditioned facility. Volunteers will be sleeping in classrooms and the gymnasium, with access to restrooms and showers in the two locker rooms. ASP recommends volunteers bring fans with them to help keep the space cool; although being set in the mountains will help cool the space at night. Volunteers need to bring twin sized air mattresses or camping cots.

Cafeteria/Kitchens: The cafeteria is in the building next door to the gymnasium. It can also be used as recreation space before/after meals!

Showers: Permanent shower dividers have been constructed in the locker room shower areas and will be new this summer! There are at least 6-7 showers in each space and both have hot water.

Recreation Space: There is recreation space in the gymnasium half that is not taken up by sleeping space. Most recreational activity will take place outside on the large football field or inside the cafeteria.

Closest Medical Facility: Lonesome Pine Hospital is 12 minutes away from the center, 1990 Holton Ave E, Big Stone Gap, VA 24219
