Group Workcamp Knoxville, Tennessee

In the heart of the valley and at the headwaters of the Tennessee River, Knoxville is a center for the region’s economy, culture, and history. This location made Knoxville, a town divided between Union and Confederate loyalties, a prize highly sought during the Civil War.

These days, as a gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and headquarters to the Tennessee Valley Authority, Knoxville is home to pioneers in industry, leaders in the arts, and traditionalists working to preserve the heritage of the region. With residents who love the southern flair of Tennessee and have a heart for culture, the Knoxville Workcamp is one you will not want to miss!

For Ages 12+

Where

While visiting Knoxville, you won’t want to miss the beautiful nature and hiking available in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Take a historic ride on the Three Rivers Rambler Steam Train. Your group may also enjoy time outside at the Volunteer Landing riverside park or World’s Fair Park.

Knoxville also offers twenty museum experiences and seven historical houses. There are wonderful things to do in Knoxville!

When

Jul 21 2019 to Jul 27 2019

Skills

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

Home repairs of all sorts are planned for this Workcamp experience. This may include: building wheelchair ramps, strengthening porches, painting inside and out, and installing skirting. Throughout the Workcamp week, you will work alongside the Cosponsor to continue bettering homes that our local partners work with on a regular basis.

Our Partner

The programs conducted through our local Cosponsor provide a wide range of opportunities for growth, restoration, and relationship-building throughout the region. While the programs are as diverse as the individuals in the communities they serve, there is one common thread: to ultimately build a better community by connecting leaders, resources, and needs. It’s a natural outgrowth of the calling as the body of Christ to minister to one another and carry each other’s burdens. That’s what is meant by weaving the fabric of a strong community.
