The Baltimore County Christian Workcamp (BCCW) is in its 36th year repairing homes and assisting those in Baltimore County during one full week in July (albeit a limited amount of work is done throughout the year). The 36th one will be Monday July 22- Friday July 26, 2019. All sorts of repairs and assistance may be done, e.g.:
- ramp building
- painting (inside and outside)
- gutter and downspout
- appliance replacement
- house and yard clean-up
This is based on the workcamp model where people travel out-of-state or out-of-country to assist others; however, BCCW is based at a church west of Towson and all sites are within Baltimore County. It is a commuters' workcamp as commitments are only for a day (or more) and volunteers sleep in their own bed at night, plus it is more economical than those away from the County. Many church youth groups participate. On Sunday preceding the week, volunteers can attend a silent auction fundraiser, kick-off dinner, and orientation meeting; then Monday-Friday, breakfast at the host church (including packing a lunch), and dinners at different churches.

No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
