What is workcamp?
Workcamp is a unique experience that offers youth and adults an opportunity to serve God by an intensive week of community service to others by hands on home repair projects for needy families, while also receiving God’s blessing of personal spiritual growth. Many of these residents have seen their homes damaged by natural disaster and years of disrepair. Workcamp offers a fun, challenging, faith building mission adventure you’ll never forget. The trips are generally taken in July and our group chooses which camp to attend.

Who attends Workcamps?
High school students, college students, young at heart adults, or anyone 14 years old and above.

What about lodging?
Local schools or churches are used for lodging, using classrooms for sleeping, the cafeteria for eating, and the gym for evening programs. Participants bring air mattresses, sleeping bags, or other bedding to sleep in classrooms. Sleeping quarters will be shared with people from other youth groups. The facilities may or may not be air-conditioned, so plan accordingly. Locker room facilities will be available for showering. Meals are prepared in the school cafeteria by local kitchen staff.

What is a typical day at workcamp? 
• Workcampers start each day with an early breakfast and usually arrive at the work sites by 8:30 a.m.
• During the day, work crews leave the school and remain at their work sites. (Picnic lunches are taken by the Workcampers to work sites.) Afternoon devotions are done on site.
• The workday usually ends around 3:30 p.m., and Workcampers return to the school, where they have free time for cleaning up, recreation, games, and resting until the evening mealtime.
• More free time following dinner leads up to an inspirational evening program— music, worship, prayer, drama, fun activities, and more.
• After the program, Workcampers have evening devotions followed by free time, and then it’s lights out.
