U.M. ARMY

More Than Mission Work

U.M. ARMY workcamps provide exterior home repairs to those who are in need of assistance. The focus of the camps is to serve others in the name of the Lord, to foster Christian fellowship, and to have time to worship together. Students are divided into work teams and have two adult leaders to guide them and supervise the work on clients’ homes. Host churches provide lodging.
