For Workcamp Volunteers
Safety is a priority at Wichita Workcamp. We are doing hard work that poses some risk. As such, all work will be supervised and every reasonable precaution has been made to ensure the safety of all WWC workers. Churches are required to send one adult for every five teenagers. Students must have completed the seventh grade to participate. Water and first aid kits are provided for each crew at each worksite. We take a lunch break and water breaks during the day. Security is hired for evening activities at the host building.
- Crew Assignments
One of the goals of Workcamp is to help teens develop relationships with other teens from area churches while they serve. Members of each congregation or youth group are intentionally assigned to different crews so they can make new friends during the week. Students do not get to choose their crew. It’s a little awkward on the first day, but we want students to develop relationships with other teens. And it’s amazing how close students get to their crew by the end of the week.
- What to Wear
We areambassadors for Christ when we go into the community. Please be sure to dress modestly. During the day, reasonable-length shorts and t-shirts are fine. But, don’t wear anything that you don’t mind getting paint on. You may choose to change each afternoon after work, so bring modest, casual clothes for the evening sessions.
