CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII-NEWS) - Sea City Work Camp, a housing rehabilitation project, is currently accepting applications from area homeowners. Homeowners must meet certain guidelines, including income and ownership qualifications. Those interested in applying should call (361) 946-WORK.
Sea City Work Camp was founded in 1993 in response to the need to help repair the homes of homeowners in the Corpus Christi area who could not afford to do it themselves. It is also a week long summer camp and service project for high school aged youth.
The youth will work on job sites replacing roofs, installing wheel chair ramps and painting homes in our community at no cost to the homeowner. In the process they build self-esteem by learning new skills and experiencing the joys of serving others.
Sea City is made possible through the financial support of individuals, businesses and organizations in the community.
During the week long camp, 100+ participants will spend the night at Grace United Methodist Church in Calallen where they have the opportunity to meet other teens, participate in recreational activities and worship together. Sea City welcomes campers and adult volunteers from all denominations. Next year’s camp will be held in June 2017.
For additional information please contact Executive Director Shirley Syamken at 361-946-9675.
