workcampNE is a week-long service-based mission trip designed for high school students, college students, and adults. Not only will you connect with others, but you will reach out and serve people in need. Students and adults from several churches come together for a week of serving, worship, and connection. Projects include painting, roofing, deck building, cleaning, etc.
For an idea of what happens at workcampNE, check out the 2015 recap video.
Who can go? Any student currently in 8th grade through college and any adult.
What are the dates? July 9-15, 2017

What is the overall cost? $375 (Below are some guidelines to help you break it down each month. The only 2 we are strictly enforcing are the February 14 deposit and the May 22 final cost.)
- February 14 – $75 (this locks you in as your non-refundable deposit)
- March 15 – $100
- April 19 – $100
- May 22 – $100
We will do some fundraising to help with the cost. The are primarily to help students, who will most likely need more help with the cost than adults, but adults are definitely invited to join in as well. Below is a list of the fundraisers we are planning.
- January 6, 13, 20, 27: Babysitting for Grow Electives (4-week classes at RCC) – This is optional, but each team member who helps will get approximately $75 to go to their trip (exact amount TBD).
- Selling drinks at Easter Egg Hunts – This is an optional fundraiser, and all the funds raised will be split between those participating.
- RCC’s Got Talent & Silent Auction (6-8 PM) (Time commitment is 5-9 PM @ RCC) – This event is required for everyone attending, and the primary purpose is to raise funds for our transportation. DATE: TBD.
In addition to paying what you can out of pocket and fundraising, we also encourage every team member to send letters to their friends and family in order to raise awareness of their trip. In this letter, you may also ask for financial support, but the main focus is prayer support. If you need a sample letter, please get in touch with me.
