Randy Hildebrant, Jubilee
and Community Worker and Workcamp Coordinator and spent a
busy summer in 2003 with workcamps in the community, performing home
repair. Jubilee Project was lucky enough to host five workgroups
in the past year. As always, the impact these groups made on our
community is amazing. Their willingness to cheerfully serve the
people of Hancock County made our workcamp summer a great success.
We have had workcamps for the last 7 summers to rebuild an old grocery store into our community center. There is a little work left to do, as well as ongoing repairs and upkeep. We are also expanding our community home repair ministry through a housing grant -- this year, we'll be working on building a handicapped accessible home from the ground up! There will also be opportunities for your group to share activities with our Youth. If your youth group would like to share some drama, games, work or recreation, let us know!
Adult groups, or senior high groups along with adults, are welcome for overnight stays. Junior High students may stay overnight, if they are part of a group that also contains Senior High youth and adults. For every five youth, there must be at least one adult.
Groups will receive
direction on jobs
from our staff, but also need to bring
their own work supervisors. These should be people familiar with
members of the group and have had some construction experience (home
counts!). Groups of any size are welcome, and your length of stay
can be variable.
dependent upon several factors, including the size of your group and
your lodging requirements. 2004 workcamps are almost full, so if
you are interested in reserving time for this year, please call
soon. Jubilee Project begins taking workcamp applications in
January of each year. For more information on Jubilee's Workcamp
Ministry, please contact Randy Hildebrant at 423-733-4195.
