June 24-June 28
To assist and serve homeowners in need in the Kershaw area community through a quality teen service and Christian discipleship program.
Youth Serve is a discipleship-based Christian camp for teens 13-19. Located in Kershaw, SC, we spend the last full week of June serving our community. We complete home repairs for those in need. We also spend our afternoon participating in a variety of service projects. These typically include a VBS for Children at a local apartment complex, a sewing class which sends clothes to third world countries, a baking class which delivers goods to local shut-ins, art projects, along with a variety of other fun ways to serve. Our goal is to model for the teens what it looks like to serve like Christ in their local community, and open their eyes to everyday opportunities to build Kingdom-centered relationship. We play games, have daily swim time, enjoy skits, music, and evening worship together in an amazing outdoor atmosphere. Lunch and dinner are enjoyed together and are provided by local churches. Transportation to and from worksites are also provided by local churches, and our central location is the pavilion in Stevens Park.
The homeowners are carefully selected, and our work crews are led by skilled adults. Teens are divided into small groups that are led by young adults who we feel are fun and excellent role models.
Youth Serve is primarily run by volunteers, and we are always thankful for those willing to serve in any capacity! We at Youth Serve sincerely believe that this program is one of the best things that our town has to offer! We hope that you will participate and fall in love with it as we have!
