It’s More Than Just a Summer Camp. It’s a Life Changing Week Salkehatchie is more than just a church outreach program. It is more than just a volunteer group and it is more than just a summer youth camp. Salkehatchie is faith in action. Youth volunteers head into rural, low-income towns to work in difficult conditions, allowing themselves to be the face, hands and feet of Christ.
Volunteers spend one week:Performing home repairs in teams, doing projects as small as a building, a ramp or as big as remodeling an entire kitchen.
(All skill sets are welcomed and encouraged.)Making a bond with families of different backgrounds than their own.Learning about teamwork and making friendships that last a lifetime. Salkehatchie strips youth of their familiar roles for seven days. Experience the significance of going unplugged, with a limited regimen in an open learning environment. You will be encouraged to do things for yourself, problem solve and learn from one another.
