This organization goes to many communities to help the less fortunate among us. The campers will spend the day repairing and renewing homes by (but not limited to) painting, house cleaning, yard work, basic construction projects, and/or helping build new homes for low income families through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. 2020 all work camps were canceled. Good Shepherd will attend work camp in 2022.

2020 Vacation bible school was canceled. In 2021 Good Shepherd will be the host for the community Vacation Bible School held in either June or July.
