Stay At Home Work Camp


If you could choose your ultimate summer vacation, would it include re-roofing a house in the hot Florida sun? Scraping the paint from someone’s house you don’t even know? Well, for a lot of kids in Lake Wales the Stay At Home Work Camp is something not to miss. Run through the Lake Wales Care Center, the Stay At Home Work Camp harnesses the strength and energy of our town’s youth to help fix up houses around Lake Wales for people who need help.

Work camp is a camp that the Lake Wales Care Center puts on for the youth of our community. Middle school and high school attends a week long camp of doing fun community service projects with their friends. During the camp campers get the opportunity to do many community service projects. These projects include painting and roofing houses, working down town, delivering meals, and helping people in many ways. These camps take place during the summer. Altogether work camp helps student reach out to the community. It helps make the community a better place.  All while having fun and building relationships.
