Group Workcamps Princeton, Illinois

You’ll find a real, old-fashioned covered bridge in the historic town of Princeton. You’ll also find people who need your help!

Today, Bureau County is dotted with small, rural communities—hometowns that have been hit hard by the recent economic downturn. Until recently there were five large factories in the area—today four have closed, leaving people out of work and losing hope. No new businesses are moving to the area—and younger citizens are leaving in search of jobs elsewhere, leaving behind seniors who struggle to maintain their homes.

Come visit and serve in a bustling city two hours west of Chicago. With a variety of shops, restaurants, and activities throughout the city, you will not regret spending a week serving in the area.

For ages 12+

Where

Princeton is an amazing neighboring city of Chicago with much to do and see. From the Starved Rock Family Fun and Crown Lanes Center, to the City County Park, you will not be disappointed.

See a show at the Apollo Theater or explore the Red Covered Bridge. Downtown Princeton is waiting for you and so are the residents!

You will stay in a large public school that is fully air-conditioned.

Skills

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!
