For one week in June/July, teams of youth and adults from churches gather at the Camp Hoover Girl Scout Camp for a week spent in Christian fellowship providing house repairs during the day and participating in camp activities in the evening. Participants start each day with a time for reflection and prayer. After breakfast, they pack bag lunches and set out in work crews for job sites. While working on homes, many youth have the opportunity to interact and learn from their home owners. After work participants enjoy dinner provided by local churches and return to camp for evening activities, singing, and worship.
How are work sites selected? Homeowners and work sites are chosen by a committee based on need for repairs, ability of the homeowner to perform the repairs themselves, and the capabilities of the work crews. If you are a homeowner who would like to request a crew during the summer, contact us.
COP is funded almost entirely by donations. If you are interested in making a donation please visit our Donations page.
