During the weeklong camp, Sea City participants work at selected home sites during the day and spend the night at local host churches. Adult foremen and home supervisors are assigned to each work location. Youth in teams of 10-13 actually perform most of the repairs, including putting on roofs, renovating kitchens and bathrooms, replacing windows, exterior and interior painting, installing floor coverings, putting up drywall and paneling, and installing wood siding. Experience is not a requirement! Youth are often amazed at the new skills they've learned which helps to increase their own self-worth.

At the end of each workday, participants are transported back to their host church for an evening of fun, fellowship and worship. Week 1 will be held at Portland First United Methodist with girls and boys having separate sleeping quarters with adult supervision. Week 2 will be held at Grace United Methodist Church. with girls and boys having separate sleeping quarters with adult supervision.

Who Can Participate
Sea City Work Camp is open to high school youth in grades 9 through 12. Youth may participate for the first time during the summer preceding the fall when they enter ninth grade. It also includes May high school graduates. College age young adults are welcome to participate as adult volunteers. They will be asked to serve as mentors for the youth in both service and work activities. They will assist the adult work site foremen and team leaders in teaching the youth skills in required work tasks. Click on "Schedule and Registration" to become a participant.

Volunteer Opportunities
There are plenty of jobs for volunteers who want to work on a home site or behind the scenes. The camp seeks volunteers skilled in construction, electrical, and plumbing. We always need drivers, material runners, overnight sponsors, food service volunteers and team leaders. Churches who send youth to participate are required to send one adult for every four youth who register. College students are encouraged to participate as adult volunteers.
