Since 2001, each summer youth and adults have participated in a summer work camp trips. This is an opportunity to explore one’s faith in a safe and service-oriented environment. Group Mission Trips, the parent agency of the camps, has a 40-year history of organizing meaningful service trips for church communities of many different denominations working together.
At work camps, hundreds of teenagers from youth groups across the country come together to serve individuals and communities while building strong, long-lasting relationships with their friends and youth leaders. In six short days, they repair and transform homes while growing in their faith.
Work camps give youth and adult participants a chance to truly be of service in the wider community. They are interactive, reflective, relevant, fun and even transforming experiences for teens and adults who, in many cases, participate year-after-year.
