More participants sought for youth and young adult workcamps.

Although the majority of the 2004 Church of the Brethren junior high, senior high, and young adult workcamps are filled or nearly filled, the General Board’s Youth and Young Adult Office reports that some locations do not seem to be generating as much interest as others.

"Despite their non-exotic setting, each of these camps would be an amazing experience for all participants," said Beth Rhodes, workcamp co-coordinator. "We want to alert all youth and young adults of the opportunities they have available to them."

Openings are in the Washington, D.C., senior high workcamp July 26-Aug. 1, with space for 14; the young adult trip to Taize, France, and Geneva, Switzerland, May 28-June 10, with space for 10; a senior high workcamp at Gould Farm in Massachusetts Aug. 9-15, with space for eight; a senior high workcamp in Keyser, W.Va., Aug. 9-15, with space for seven; the Disaster Response senior high workcamp July 25-31, with space for five; and the Brethren Revival Fellowship senior high workcamp in the Dominican Republic June 20-30, also with space for five. A junior high workcamp in New Windsor, Md., July 19-23, has openings for three participants. For more information contact the Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office, 800-323-8039.
