WorkCamp 2019
June 22 - June 28, 2019

Preparations have begun for this summer's WorkCamp! We have a great group going, and we are still in need of adult volunteers. 

WorkCamp is open to all high school teens who will have completed freshman year. WorkCamp involves spending one week with 800 other teens in the Arlington Diocese working on home projects such as painting, drywall, roof repairs, building decks and wheelchair ramps, and other needed home repair projects for physically, mentally, or financially challenged people. WorkCamp 2019 will be headquartered in King George, VA (not far from last year's location).

We also need adults to volunteer as crew leaders and contractors. Crew leaders are in charge of their group of five teens, working on the home project and attending the evening programs at homebase. Contractors do not need to stay at homebase, but attend the work projects Monday through Thursday. 

If interested, please contact our St. James Stakeholder, Karen Graffam at, or Fr. Oetjen at For more information, visit the WorkCamp page on the Arlington Diocese website.
