Work Camp / Volunteers in Mission
Work Camp serves two purposes at Henderson Settlement. First, and primarily, it serves as an opportunity to educate persons in mission and the needs that exist among the less fortunate in our society. Secondly, work camp often serves as the bridge between dreams and reality for families of the Laurel Fork Valley of southeastern Kentucky and northern Tennessee, while giving groups the opportunity to witness for Christ through home repair. The Frakes campus is open year around.
Work teams are able to adopt a home repair project(s) and raise the money for the project(s), projects adopted should be within their team’s means. The project(s) a team selects should be equal to the skill level of the team leader's.
The 2017-2018 cost per person for Work Camp is as follows:
• $250 per person to stay in the Mission Dorm
• $325 per person to stay in Guest Housing

Work Camp at the White Oak Center
In the 1990s, requests for assistance increased in the area around White Oak, Tennessee, because this community has challenges similar to those in the Frakes community. Teams working on homes in the area were at a disadvantage having to travel seventeen miles back to the Settlement for food and lodging.
The White Oak Center opened in the summer of 2001, and since then, during the summer months, many teams have been based out of this facility. Up to 48 people can be housed and fed. Work teams are scheduled through the Work Camp Office at Henderson Settlement, and a project manager is on site at White Oak to assist the teams during working hours.
