The Church of the Brethren’s Workcamp Office is highlighting a special workcamp to take place next summer: the “We Are Able” workcamp for intellectually and physically disabled young adults.
The workcamp “is a wonderful opportunity for intellectually and
physically disabled young adults,” reports Tricia Ziegler, assistant
workcamp coordinator. “The workcamp is going to take place in New
Windsor, Md., and will be accompanied by a Young Adult Assistant
Workcamp. This workcamp is provided as an opportunity for disabled young
adults (ages 16-23) to have a chance to serve others and be successful
at the same time.”
The workcamp is four days long, from June 10-13, 2013. Participants
will have opportunities to meet new people, have fun, and work and
“Spread the word about this awesome ministry, and together let us make this a great summer for workcamps,” Ziegler said.
