Work camps and service projects
Group members provide the manual labor necessary to complete projects such as building or painting. Housing and meals are simple, and some facilities may be primitive. You and your group work alongside members of the the host culture and are expected to, among other things, help prepare food and clean up. Group members often have the opportunity to sing or share during worship services.
