South Ogden City Workcamps

Group Workcamps are intensive one-week programs that help young people grow in spiritual faith through service to others. Approximately 450 youth and adult leaders from around the country will spend one week in our community- June 15-21, 2008.

They will be performing hands-in-home-repair projects for up to 70 low-income, elderly, disabled, and single parent families. The work at each home will be done by a team of 5 young people and at least one adult leader, assisted by staff professionally experienced in home repair.

Eligible repair projects will include: exterior painting, interior painting, porch or steps repaired or rebuilt, weatherization, or wheelchair ramps constructed or repaired.

This is for low-income residents of South Ogden City who own their own homes and are senior citizens, have a disabled person in the household, or are single moms with children in the home under the age of 18.

All applicants must be residents of Ogden or South Ogden Cities. Homes are selected on a first come, first serve basis. If you are someone who qualifies or you know someone who qualifies there are applications at City Hall located at 3950 Adams Avenue Ste. 1. If you have any questions please contact Ryan Harvey at 622-2726 or email him at
