As we serve, our actions and appearance speak loudly and have the potential to influence the community’s perception of Brothers’ Keeper and most importantly our witness for Christ. Choosing modest clothing helps to avoid distractions and misunderstandings both on the project site and in camp. We ask that you choose apparel consistent with certain guidelines.
You will bend, twist, sit, climb and crawl as you love and serve on our project teams. Shorts will only get shorter with these activities. Here’s how we define short: Let your arms fall to your side – if your fingers touch skin, bring a longer pair (whether you are male or female).
These guidelines are for ALL groups!
2 pairs of long pants
Mid-thigh or longer shorts
2 or 3 cotton t-shirts
Please be aware that everyone must wear shirts with sleeves at all times. No tank tops, muscle shirts, torn or ripped t shirts, halter tops, spaghetti straps or midriff tops.
Comfortable shoes or boots to work in
Comfortable shoes to wear in evening
Socks (suitable to wear in work shoes)
Underwear for five days
Hat or cap (for sun protection)
Appropriate summer sleepwear
Modest swimsuit (one piece for girls or must wear a shirt, modest and appropriate length for guys along with a shirt)
If clothing does not meet our guidelines, you will be asked to purchase the appropriate clothing at your expense before participating in any activities.
