WorkCamp is a week-long mission trip designed to help high school students live out their Catholic faith. This is accomplished through direct service with people in need, communal prayer and worship, small group discussions, talks, and much more. The work you do depends on which trip you attend and to what work site you are assigned, but it is typically light to moderate home improvement and/or construction. All work is well supervised and safe.
If you are only interested in completing service hours, WorkCamp is probably not for you. If you are open to God working in you and through you, and if you are interested in serving your brothers and sisters in Christ, then WorkCamp will probably be an amazing experience for you.
WorkCamp requires a great deal of preparation and a lot of prayers! We also need to raise substantial amounts of money. Therefore the planning begins months in advance, and our WorkCamp Teams are solidified by February.

And when the rich meet the poor, we will see poverty come to an end.” – Shane Claiborne.
