Group Workcamp Savannah, Georgia
Savannah is known as America’s first planned city and is arguably the most beautiful coastal town in Georgia. It has a long rich history and you can help build the future.
Since it’s early beginnings in 1733, the plan was to offer a new start for England’s working poor and to strengthen the colonies by increasing trade. Under the original charter, individuals were free to worship as they pleased, and rum, lawyers, and slavery were forbidden for a time.
Savannah was originally laid out in a series of grids that allowed for wide open streets intertwined with shady public squares and parks that served as town meeting places and centers of business. Savannah had 24 original squares and 22 squares are still in existence today. Over time, Savannah has seen its share of trouble, many wars, devastating fires, hurricanes, and crumbling economies.
Today, tourism is a major part of Savannah’s success. Behind the historical fountains and elegant architecture are residents needing repairs to roofs and beautification to structures. Virtually every home we work on needs a new roof and a paint job. That is our goal in Savannah. You will be challenged, and you will feel accomplished helping folks stay warm and dry.
A Challenge Workcamp is mostly the same as a regular Workcamp. Challenge camps offer expanded or more complex repair projects.
