Southridge High School
This camp is a “Next Level” Catholic HEART Workcamp. It is open to those entering the 8th grade in the fall of 2017 and older.
Director: Nick Balabanski
- Entire school is air conditioned
- Showers – We have 4 sets of showers (2 sets for girls and 2 sets for boys)
- Sleeping Arrangements – The campers will sleep in classrooms all of which are carpeted. 15-20 will fit comfortably. Per Evansville diocese rules (18 and older will sleep separately from 17 and under youth)
We have an excellent mix of traditional work sites (painting, yard work, building rehab) and social agencies including senior citizen homes, area parish needs, day care centers, homes for persons with disabilities. Most sites are within 15 minutes of the school, however some sites are as far away as 45 minutes. We have some unique opportunities in Huntingburg, IN including St. Meinrad Archabbey, Sisters of St. Benedict Monastery, and St. Joseph’s Holy Family.
