One of the most amazing parts of the Brothers’ Keeper experience is the friendships that develop between individuals and youth groups. We help break the ice with the way project teams are organized.
A Project Team includes youth and leaders from different groups. The members are mixed and many times there will be no one from your home youth group on your work team. Don’t let it scare you! It is one of the greatest parts of BK. Just ask one of our BK veterans! No one may switch to another Project Team once assigned.
Adult Counselors will assist at worksites building morale and work cooperation.
Parchment Valley has a variety of dorms and cabins for our summer missionaries. Church groups room with their own group together by gender. Adults attending with youth are Cabin Counselors with responsibility and authority in that setting. Failure to follow Cabin Counselor instructions may result in a camper being sent home. Dorms are air conditioned.
