Rising 9th grade to graduated seniors

 

The Diocesan Work Camp is a weeklong camp experience for high school youth to serve our brothers and sisters in need by making their homes safer, warmer, drier, and greener while also having the opportunity to grow in our Catholic faith.

 

Work Camp is not just a youth event. It is an opportunity for parishes to make a difference in the lives of those in need right here in our diocese while encouraging youth to answer their baptismal call to serve others. It is a transformative experience in the life of the adults who assist as well, whether as a volunteer, contractor, or chaperone.

 

The Diocesan Work Camp will be held Saturday, June 22, 2024, through Friday, June 28, 2024 in Hampton Roads. The work projects will take place in the surrounding community. Peninsula Catholic High School in Newport News will serve as our home base where participants and adults will sleep, eat, and participate in evening programming.

 

Due to the structure of the week all participants must be able to attend the whole week of Work Camp. Full participation is expected from check-in time on Saturday until after the closing programming on Friday.
