The Workcamps are typically six-day camps for kids ages 12-20 specializing in home repair. Each camp of approximately 400 people will work at a home in small teams (5-6 people with one or two adults), helping someone special. The youth on their mission trip will perform acts of service through home repair, basic construction and painting.
Everyone will serve; each with important roles and each project is incredibly meaningful to the people being served. Activities for the 2010 youth missions season can include:
• Interior and exterior painting
• Building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps
• Building or repairing steps
• Weatherization and other home repairs
During the 2010 youth missions, even the daily programs are special. There won’t be a boring sermon, but a high-impact, interactive program filled with music, Scripture, video, drama, stories, and hands-on activities. Programs and daily devotions, designed by Group Magazine, help shape teens’ service experience into a spiritual growth experience.
