Youth Summer Service Camp

Sunday, June 21–Saturday, June 27, 2020

Teens (currently in grades 8–12) will spend the week doing home improvement projects for elderly and low-income families: interior and exterior painting, building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps, building or repairing steps, weatherization, and other home repairs that residents can’t do themselves.

  • No prior home improvement skills are required!
  • Team training classes will be held on these Sundays at 11:00 am: Apr. 26, May 24, and June 14.
  • In addition to work projects, there will be devotional times and evening programs (view a typical day’s schedule below). Midweek, there will be a break for a fun trip to Hershey Park.
  • Contact Pastor Greg at godell@cherrydale.org with any questions.
