HOW ARE ADULTS FROM EACH PARISH UTILIZED DURING THE WEEK?

Every adult (21 years and older) is assigned to a worksite (unless they have requested to be an Associate Staff or Troubleshooter). We depend on adults to work side by side with the young people in accomplishing the work projects. For the safety of the teens, each parish must have at least one adult chaperone in [...]

HOW DO WE TRAVEL TO THE WORKCAMP?

Most groups use vans or small buses to travel to CHWC. We ask that these same vehicles be available to transport teams to their worksites during the week. To abide by state law, vehicles must be equipped with seatbelts for all riders. Participants will not be allowed to ride in open trucks or vehicles [...]

WHAT WILL WE EAT AT CAMP?

The menu is based on a well-balanced diet that will provide all the nutritional and calorie needs. CHWC does realize that there will be campers with food allergies, vegetarians, etc. We feel we offer enough options for vegetarians, but if a camper requires a special diet, they are required to bring their own food or supplement [...]

WILL MY TEENS BE MIXED WITH OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE WORKSITES?

WHAT IF A YOUNG PERSON HAS NO HOME REPAIR EXPERIENCE?

As long as young people come with a servant’s attitude, there is no problem involving them in home repair projects. We match skills to projects. Young people are not asked to participate in projects they are not equipped to handle. There is plenty of work that needs to be done, such as painting, which [...]

HOW IS SAFETY MAINTAINED AT THE WORKSITES?

CHWC’s bottom line is the safety of its campers. As a service organization, this is our top priority in choosing which communities we will be involved with. Each worksite will have at least one adult per small work group. No camper under 18 years old will be allowed to use power tools. Adults who [...]

HOW ARE THE WORKSITES SELECTED?

We work in cooperation with various agencies in each city to choose the sites and work projects. These agencies exist to improve the lives of low-income families, children and the elderly. Sites are chosen according to their need for repairs and assistance. We choose sites where teens and young adults can accomplish the work [...]
