Sea City Work Camp is not your usual summer camp.  It involves paint and roof shingles mixed with sweat and hardwork.

This week, nearly 80 teenagers are giving their time to help fix up homes in the area.  Teens spend a full week giving back to those in need while learning new skills.  This year, repairs are being made at seven different locations, providing those in need with high-quality repairs.

“We don’t leave anything undone so they know that before we leave, it is done to code. So they are thrilled,” said Kathy Rios, Sea City Work Camp public relations, “A lot of them are elderly folks on fixed income that have been waiting for someone to come and fix their home.”

At the end of each workday, the teens stay at a host church and enjoy fun and fellowship
