Clothing Guidelines

You will need to pack jeans (you may be working in areas where jeans are needed),shorts, t-shirts, underwear, pajamas, tennis shoes, sandals, socks, swimsuit, sweatshirt or jacket, and work gloves.  At most of our work sites, we paint.  Please bring clothing that you can paint in.  Short shorts and cut-offs are prohibited so please make sure that your shorts are a modest length.  No halter tops, midriffs, tank tops, or muscle shirts are allowed. Please make sure that any wording or graphics on your t-shirt does not take away from your witness for Christ.  Swimsuits:  Ladies swimsuits should be one piece, no two piece swimsuits will be allowed.  Every participant is required to wear tennis shoes or work boots on all work sites.  No sandals or flip flops will be allowed on the work sites.

Things Not to Bring

Please do not bring bad attitudes, knives guns, tobacco products, large radios, or anything else that is questionable.  If you feel the need to ask, just don’t bring it.  Please consider taking the challenge of leaving your cell phone and iPod/MP3 player at home.  These things can be a distraction from a worshipful experience for you and others.


All food and lodging costs are included in the tuition paid by each participant. Snacks are also provided, however, additional money may be brought for extra snacks and souvenirs.

Please Note
