Wednesday is a unique day in that it is a half day of work and all workcrews are required to return to the host school by 1:00pm! We have found that youth groups really value an afternoon together in the middle of a busy workcamp week. That’s why Wednesday afternoon is free for your youth group to go site-seeing, swimming at the local pool or lake, play mini-golf, visit Wal-Mart, or whatever it is you want to do. Once you register for a particular workcamp, Reach will provide you with all the information on the local things to do. Supper is your youth group’s responsibility for Wednesday Evening. Upon your return that evening, there will be an optional volleyball tournament against the staff for anyone, or any group, to showcase their stuff. We do ask that all groups return to the school by 10:00pm in order to prepare for lights out.
Saturday (departure day)
6:30 am Wakey, wakey workcampers! You will be blessed with a later wake up call than normal!

9:00 am Time to load back in your vehicles and head for home.
