Center Information

Sleeping Quarters: This is not an air conditioned facility. Volunteers will be sleeping in 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.

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: Showers are in the locker rooms inside the gymnasium. There are at least 5 working shower heads per locker room, with hot water! They have been divided up into stalls with curtains from the original group shower set up.

Recreation Space: There will be some space in the gymnasium apart from sleep space, and there will be some old games like Foosball and other tables. Most recreational activity will take place in the cafeteria or outside on the large football field. Almost the entire school’s campus is at ASP’s disposal!

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