2019 Work Camp: Topeka, Kansas

Work Camp is a mission trip that young adults and chaperones from St. Teresa of Calcutta take part in every summer to serve individuals and communities while building strong, long-lasting relationships with their friends and youth leaders. In six short days, hundreds of teenagers from youth groups across the country repair and transform homes while growing closer to Jesus. This is a great opportunity to get to know teens and adults from our parish and serve others together. You will grow in your faith, meet lots of new people and have a blast doing so!

St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish has been offering this mission trip experience for 18 years. If you’re ready for a life-changing outstanding experience, join us for Work Camp 2019 in Topeka, Kansas. There is a commitment for all participants to fundraise and grow spiritually with the group. If you are interested in Work Camp (teens or adults) please contact the Christian Formation office.
