So, How BIG is Workfest 2009?

So, how big is Workfest 2009? Well, the program is based out of two camps, Camp A.J. and Camp Caleb. It spans four weeks. There are 42 participating schools. Most schools have between 10-12 participants and few have 15 volunteers. That is a lot of free labor. That is a lot of opportunities to serve, to network, to make new friends and a huge opportunity to have fun.

42 schools from the Eastern seaboard, the Midwest and the South result in a lot of ripples. This is significant impact. 42 schools results in a lot of folks going back home touched by Appalachia, touched by servanthood and touched by Christian sister and brotherhood.

Below are a list of the participating schools. We attended during week two and I highlighted the schools that made up Camp Caleb. We were awesome!
