Group Workcamp Erie, Pennsylvania

The boroughs adjacent to Erie, PA have seen a cultural change over the last several years as major industrial businesses have left and caused the community to rely on tourism for the foundation of their economy.

This beautiful area draws many tourists, being only two hours from Niagara Falls and directly along the lengthy shores of Lake Erie. Welch’s grapes are also grown here and are a great excuse to enjoy grape jelly or juice! However, the same weather that makes Erie perfect for growing delicious grapes creates harsh winters along the south shore of the lake that boasts the “Best Sunsets in the World.”

Nonetheless, tourism is slight during the harsh winters and many businesses have struggled to survive during the off-season. With such, residents need your assistance to help preserve the beautiful community of homes in the city. We can guarantee your week of service will greatly impact the residents of Erie and you will not regret taking a week off to be around the amazing city and people of Erie.

For ages 14+

Your participants will provide home repairs at no cost for elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged people who need your help. Work crews typically serve the same resident for the entire trip, creating an environment where meaningful relationships develop.

Most projects are designed to be completed during the trip, allowing your group to experience the satisfaction of a job well done. You’ll serve the needs of others through projects like interior and exterior painting, building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps, building or repairing steps, weatherization and other home repairs. No skills are needed!

What We Will Do

How You’ll Serve

Many elderly and disabled residents need assistance with exterior projects.
