We will be staying and serving at Delanco Camp. Delanco is lo- cated at 191 Powell Place Rd., Tabernacle, NJ (near where Rt. 70 & 206 meet, 20 minutes from Hope) and is a Christian summer camp ministry for youth and their families. Several hundred kids spend a week of their summer at Delanco each year. Check out for more info. The cost includes four meals, lodging, and work projects.

The purpose for our stay at Delanco is to serve the camp and to prepare Delanco for the beginning of its summer camping season. Our specific construction projects are varied. Some projects from previous years have included– window replacement, bridges, decking & railings, new porch enclosure, winter clean up (leaf raking), painting projects, and other small construction projects. And we have a blast serving together. We will also be spending some time together talking about what it means to serve and doing some team-building activities. We will sleep in the camp dormitories on Friday and Saturday night. And we eat all our meals together in the camp dining hall.
