Work Camp

Projects

  

The goal of most of our projects is to keep clients in their homes.  Work Camp volunteers build ramps, repair porches and steps, paint exteriors and interiors, and make some ceiling and roof repairs.  New skirting is installed on mobile homes as needed.  Smaller jobs include clearing debris from yards and general lawn maintenance.  Some Work Camp groups conduct Vacation Bible School for children in the community.  Other groups work at senior centers or food pantries.

Dates and Participation

  

Work Camp is usually scheduled for June and July.  Other dates are available on request.  Campers are middle school and high school age with adults in their group to supervise on each work site.  Work teams of adults only are also welcomed.

Volunteer Housing

  

Housing is provided by host churches near the work sites.  Air mattresses and sleeping bags transform classrooms into dormitories.  Work Camp groups have access to the church kitchen and are responsible for their own meals.  Shower facilities are provided.

Cost

  

The group registration fee is $500 for a week and is due to reserve your date.  The materials fee is $85 per person (half due April 15, half due week of camp).
