I was blessed with the opportunity to go to work camp last year. My son Josh had been going for several years before and coming back home and talking about all the people that touched his life. To see a young man go and serve the less fortunate and bring them to the lord was simply amazing. I served as a crew leader with young men and women of different talents with different backgrounds and watch them come together with one common goal, to show the love of god through working on the residents homes doing construction projects. Painting, siding, roofing, etc... Also we were able to do devotions and invite the home owners to join us to learn more about the lords love, not only for us but for them also. Work Camp New England works all year to find families that will allow total strangers to come into their home and tear stuff up. Tear down walls not only constructed walls, but walls of past hurts and scars that are removed and healed by the Lord. It is simply an amazing place run by truly amazing people. It not only made a difference in the home owners life, the kids on my crews life, but changed my life forever!

This camp allowed me to experience and gain an attitude towards servicing others. This was my first service project where I had to work along side with others and fix up homes! It is an amazing christian camp where students from all over New England come with their churches to repair homes by giving up one week of their summer! The worship at the camp blew me away. You meet friends from different parts of New England who also share a heart to serve. It's wonderful!

I have gone to Workcamp New England that last two years. I had so much fun and the impact was incredible. The students who attend do a great favor by working on the homes of the elderly and underprivileged. I am still not sure who is blessed more the residents (the people who have free repair done to their homes) or the students, who learn what it means to work hard and help other people. Workcamp New England is true charity that makes a lasting change.
One of my favorite memories of WCNE was painting Angy's house (elderly Woman in MA). She was happy to get her house painted, but more than that she was over joyed that young people wanted to come hang out with her. She was truly blessed and so was our work crew. Angie is wonderful.

This is an organization I hope to be a part of well into the future.

I have built friends ships with people who want to make lasting change in this world. I have had the opportunity to be a possessive influence to high school students. I see high students come to an understanding that the world does not revolve around them.

The only feedback I would give Workcamp is this "Keep growing and add camps, so you can reach more residents and students alike.." This is an organization I hope to be a part of well into the future.

What is WorkCampNE? Very plainly it is a place where both Jr. High and High school students come to exemplify that servant heart of Jesus, through various work projects. I have been a part of many non-profit organizations and I can honestly say this one is run with excellence. The experience of the leadership as well as the well thought out logistics to seemingly every problem was like nothing I've ever seen before. The fact that I saw High school students get excited about scraping paint and replacing siding on a strangers house in 90 degree heat is a testament to the passion and humility that is WorkCampNE. This is something that I am eager to take back to my community. I look forward to being a part of WorkCampNE for a very long time.

I am a youth minister and we take a group of kids down every year because they never come back the same. I have seen the impact on these kids and the excitement when you mention about goin the next year. the results of this organizatioin go far beyon fixing a broken home, they share the love of Jesus in a tangable way, and that is something that is hard to forget.

Give more weeks for kids to attend.

WorkcampNE has been a great oppurtunity for my midwest youth group to experience what it means to help out those in need. they provide a great program in which it allows for the youth to feel that they are needed and most importantly they allow the youth to make connections with the residents they serve. WorkcampNe is a great spring board to use to bring youth back to the Midwest and want to serve people here too.

It has been such a blessing to see students grow in their faith - youth ministers connect with their "kids" and witness the residents of the communities we serve connect with our Sr. High Schoolers & Jr. Highers.
Home repairs take a back seat to the lives impacted... but that's ok, the goal is
to be examples of what God calls us to do - love one another. We choose to do so through tangible efforts of providing minor home repairs... and our students & volunteers are THE BEST!!

WorkcampNE is such a fantastic experience for young people. It isn't easy to convince teenagers to give up their time to help those less fortunate, but one visit to this camp seems to be all most students need to be hooked. WorkcampNE shifts the focus off of the individual and onto how the individual is meant to live as a contributing part of a community.

workcampNE is an organization that impacts the lives of many individuals. I have been involved for over 8 years as a volunteer at camp and a board member. workcampNE's impact is twofold. First, the young adults who volunteer a week of their summer vacation get the opportunity to share Christ's love for others by repairing homes of the elderly and less fortunate, and second the lives of the homeowners are touched by the work done and new friendships made. Both my kids participated for quite a few years and have said they looked forward to this week where they could help others and grow in their own faith.

This Organization really opened my eyes to the lives of less fortunate than I am. For example, the third year there there was an older lady that had one side of her house open to the elements. It was rotten. It wasnt on our list of things to do when we discovered it but arrangments where quickly made to take care of the gaping hole in the side of her house. It really stuck me with the compasion of this mission and the people who help.

Last summer was my first experience with Workcamp NE. I came in not knowing what to expect, and I lelft with the best experience of my life.
not only did I love seeing the lives we changed throughout the week, but I also grew in my own faith as well. My whole crew used our own personal
experiences to reach out ot our resident, and it was a wonderful feeling watching them grow in their faith as well. I came back from camp with the love of serving others, and I'll definitely be coming back this year!
