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.

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.

The labor of love that WorkCamp exemplifies is a wonderful example for all of us. Even though we’ve never had hands-on experience with the camp, it’s truly moving to know that there are young people and adults giving their time and effort to help those less fortunate. We know that WorkCampNE is professionally run by dedicated people who strive to make this a wonderful experience for the campers and homeowners. We feel blessed to be associated with such an enthusiastic and inspirational group of people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

as an outsider.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

look at ways to expand it's reach.

My son went to WorkcampNE last summer for the first time with the JR. high group. It was a life changing experience for him. He went a quiet shy not sure of his faith kind of kid and came back with such confident and a new understanding of what it means to serve God. The family he helped were so appreciative and it gave him the opportunity to see how others live and just how blessed he is. He cannot wait to go back this summer!! The staff is AMAZING! They have all kept in touch with my son this past year and continued to grow their relationships and it's going to be like a family reunion this summer. They do such great work for others but the kids are the ones that really win. They are learning how to be amazing Christ followers and productive citizens in our communities.

The changes in my young teenage son are noticeable to everyone. He is grown spiritually and emotionally through this missions experience. Looking forward to another summer with WorkcampNE and the fantastic people who run it!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more funds so they can expand their ministry and not only help more families in need but allow more kids to be able to attend the camp.
