Group Workcamps Pocahontas, Virginia
At first when you consider the commonwealth of Virginia, you might think of the Washington DC metro area, or perhaps the beautiful coastline, or the rolling hills that contain the majority of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Appalachian Trail. Pocahontas is none of these. It is a small community that sits near the state line between Virginia and West Virginia in the far southwest of the state. Pocahontas has a rich history and past impact on America that few people will ever hear about.
The town is our smallest in all of Workcamps, just 0.6 square miles with 441 people. We’ll be doing work throughout the wider community, but your group will experience a small town, Appalachian Workcamp while here. Close to the lowest per-capita income of any part of the nation, this hard-working community struggles to make ends meet. They need to remember they are not forgotten.
