Workcamps

At Workcamps, teenagers come together to serve individuals and communities while building strong, long-lasting relationships with their friends and youth leaders. In six short days, hundreds of teenagers from youth groups across the country repair and transform homes while growing closer to Jesus.

There are many ways that you can get involved in a Workcamp, such as providing lodging, donating tools and supplies, and traditional tax-deductible donations.

Resources

The main goal of site surveying is to provide Workcamps with the appropriate number of complete, accurate, high-quality work descriptions and driving directions.

Weekend Workcamps

The Friday through Monday model allows adult volunteers to easily get involved with the ministry of serving while not sacrificing too much vacation or family time. Groups will be part of bringing life-changing service to 40 to 60 homeowners and residents. Groups will not only bring repair to a house, they will also bring hope to a resident and their home.

There are many ways that you can get involved in a Workcamp, such as providing lodging, donating tools and supplies, and traditional tax-deductible donations.
