New Braunfels is the second fastest growing city in the United States with a population of 80,000. It is located just off of Interstate 35 between the cities of Austin and San Antonio. Considered one of the best vacation spots in Texas, New Braunfels is home to the world’s largest waterpark, Schlitterbahn. Thousands of people visit this city every year to enjoy tubing on the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers.
While there are many affluent areas in New Braunfels, there are also very poor and disadvantaged areas. With a multi-cultural population, there will be many opportunities for campers to interact with people who may only speak Spanish. Work sites will include yard work, interior and exterior painting, light construction, and building wheel chair ramps for elderly and struggling families. We will also help out at a food bank, thrift store, and several other social agencies.
