Strengthen neighborhoods, seek justice, and transform lives today through an amazing mission immersion experience.
About the Trip
The Back Bay Mission seeks to help those living in poverty on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Housing restoration is a staple of Back Bay Mission’s ministry and the primary purpose of our work camp week. This program helps low-income families stay in their homes by making necessary renovations and repairs.
The Back Bay Mission has developed a highly successful style of work camping based on experiential learning. Work teams perform a wide range of tasks – from mold abatement to roofing to installing dry wall to electrical and plumbing work. There is also an opportunity to work in the Micah Day Center, the food pantry, and the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen. Throughout the trip, travelers come together for meals and fellowship with each other. They usually spend a half day off-site, sometimes in another city, as tourists to the area.
The 2017 trip dates are September 10-16.
