Erie, PA has seen a cultural change over the last several years as major industrial businesses have left and caused the community to rely on tourism for the foundation of their economy. Elderly and low-income families are in need of assistance to preserve their community of homes in this city. Your group is needed to repair porches, caulk windows, build wheelchair ramps, repair water damage, and more.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Workcamp crew taking a break

In Erie, tourism is slight during the harsh winters and many businesses have struggled to survive during the off-season. With such, elderly and low-income residents of this community need your assistance to help preserve the beautiful community of homes in the city. Your week of service will greatly impact the residents of Erie and you will not regret taking a week to be around this amazing city and people of Erie.

Home repair is just part of the story…Your teenagers will share the love of Christ with people by performing much needed home repairs. They’ll serve as they’ve never served before. And, over six days, you’ll see your young people transformed—their Christian faith deepened.

You don't need to be a construction guru to have a satisfying experience. All you and your youth group need is a willingness to serve the elderly, disabled, or disadvantaged. Typically, you’ll work at a home in small teams (5-6 teenagers with one or two adults) helping someone who needs—and appreciates—your help.

From the moment your group arrives on Sunday afternoon, your teenagers will begin making new friends.

You’ll eat together…worship together…and create new favorite stories. You’ll lift the spirits of a community! All while you’re having the time of your lives.

Everyone serves, each person in an important role. There’s a good chance you and your young people will learn new skills, and we’ll help. Plus, we handle the logistics and details (even the cooking and cleaning) so you and your youth group can focus on growing in your faith. You’ll experience projects like…

-Interior and exterior painting

-Building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps

-Building or repairing steps

-Weatherization and other home repairs

You’ll applaud the daily programs and devotions. Along with up to 400 other people, you’ll experience high-impact, interactive programs with music, Scripture, video, drama, and hands-on activities…led by a trained youth ministry professional.

And, we've got you well-covered with a trip director, program leader, song leader, and up to 14 additional trained staff to handle project materials, project assignments, office, program multimedia, project site coaching…and more.

Plan now to challenge your youth this summer. Bring your group closer to Jesus at a Group Mission Trip Workcamp.
