What is Workcamp

Workcamp is a weeklong service program with high school youth from across the Diocese. Throughout the week the teens and adult volunteers help people in need by making their homes warmer, safer, and drier.  Workcamp is an opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ and build community with others. Testimonies and videos of previous workcamps are provided below.

Adult Volunteer Opportunities

Are you an adult and interested in volunteering in any capacity. Adult volunteers are essential to make workcamp a success.  There are various roles of volunteering where you can help for the whole week, accompany the teens as a crew leader, or help in an overnight/one-time role. Below are various way’s one can get involved

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Contractor- A contractor is an essential role in workcamp. They commit for the week and spearhead the service aspect of the week. They overlook the work in the houses and
  • Crew Leader- A crew leader accompanies our teens throughout the process of our prep prior to and during workcamp. The contractor’s main obligation in a sense is the work where the crew leader is the teens.
  • Overnight Security- If you can’t commit for the week, but are interested in helping for a day or two one of the roles you can assist in is security. One is committed to making sure home-based (the high school which acts as the primary gathering location for the week) is secured.
  •  SJN needs throughout the year- there are days throughout the year where we gather or fundraise that help is needed. Dates include a Mardi Gras fundraiser,  tool training, workcamp prep meetings etc..
