Target demographics: students with growing their faith through community service

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 200 students and 30 families.

Geographic areas served: the northeast

Programs: worship and devotions for the students and no cost home repairs to the community we serve. We will work on the homes of the under-resourced, elderly and the physically unable, providing the labor and materials at not cost to the residents.

Mission:
workcampNE seeks to provide an environment that helps foster the growth of students' relationship with Christ through community service opportunities. We celebrate each evening with a worship service and hear a lesson that ties in our day's work with the message of the gospel. Our service is to provide home repairs to those who cannot afford to do so themselves, are elderly or physically unable.

Through the use of community service we are able to demonstrate and make "real" the gospel message and impress upon our need as Christians to "do" rather than "be."

Our service to the community is to provide home repairs to those who either cannot afford to do so themselves, are elderly or physically unable. We provide all the materials and labor and there is no cost for the resident. This is a service to families, single parents, and individuals.

Jr. High and High School students come from all over the country (mostly the northeast) and pay a tuition to attend. Much of the tuition is then used to pay for the materials. The students provide the labor.

There are not many organzations that actually help high school students think outside of themselves. WorkcampNE does exactly that. I'd highly recommend attending camp for any high school student that's looking for (or needs!) an authentic experience of helping under-resourced, elderly or disabled ... more »

I have been a part of workcampne for 12 years and will continue to be a part of this amazing experience for the rest of my life. I love giving back to people who are less fortunate. It's a heart warming experience getting to know the residents whose house you are working on. Especially when at the ... more »

I went to work camp summer of 2010 and it was utterly amazing! The camp is not only a place to grow and develop spiritually but a place to be a humble servant of God's by being HIS hands and feet! Working on resident's homes were such a huge blessing! The worship blew me away but most of all, ... more »
