What is WorkCamp?
WorkCamp is an intentional Christian Community that provides an opportunity for direct service to the young people within the boundaries of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. Due to ongoing COVID restrictions, St. Raymond’s will be hosting our own WorkCamp, on a much smaller scale, doing projects and helping those in need within our parish boundaries.
St. Raymond’s will be holding our own version of WorkCamp this summer, June 19th & June 21st-25th. Teens must commit to the full day for all 6 days in order to participate. We will have daily Mass, work in crews on projects, have fun, eat dinner & have an evening program etc. but will sleep at home. WorkCamp is open to current 9-12th graders. We will be helping several families with some pretty exciting projects! No prior WorkCamp, construction, or tool knowledge is necessary as everything will be taught on site and supervised by our contractors.
The promo video below is from a past WorkCamp hosted by the Diocese to give you a general idea of what WorkCamp is like. Keep in mind, it will be on a much smaller scale as we aim to do a mini version of WorkCamp at the parish level this year.
