About FredCamp

What is FredCamp?

FredCamp is a local, non-profit 501(3) corporation. We exist to bring together youth and adult volunteers for one week each year; together, we live and work together in a Christian community, performing critical home repairs and remodeling for low-income individual and families in Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, Caroline and King George. We also make time for fellowship, fun, and great food!

Who can come to FredCamp?

Youth must be at least 14 years old or going into the 9th grade. Adult campers must accompany each group of youth campers. There must be one for each sex attending, and one for each group of five or less. Adults must be at least 23 years old. FredCamp is limited to 50 youth participants.

What will we be doing?

We will be working on 10 homes in the Fredericksburg area belonging to lower income families or elderly folks. Typical work projects might include basic home repair, replacing flooring, painting, patching drywall, wheel chair ramps, fixing porches. The possibilities are endless!

Where will we stay?

FredCamp is housed at the Fredericksburg Christian High School just outside Fredericksburg in Spotsylvania County.

Who will be in my crew?

Crews are made up of youth, from different churches. And, although no specific skills are required to attend FredCamp, skills needed for certain jobs are taken into consideration when forming crews.

What will we do in the evening?

Each evening we will creatively reflect on the day’s activities and the theme of the week with music, stories, dance and art. Our program leader will lead us through these activities designed to strengthen our Christian walk.

Is there time to relax?

On Wednesday afternoon we’ll take a break and enjoy some time away re-creating and recreating as a group. Be sure to bring your bathing suit and a beach towel! Wednesday evening we will let our hair down and enjoy a talent show performed by…YOU!

What about tools and transportation?

Each person is asked to bring at least two tools to share in addition to tools they bring for their personal use. Groups will be assigned a color so tools can be sorted. Also, each adult or group is expected to provide enough vehicles to transport their crews for the week. Each adult will be with a crew of 5 – 6 people. (Vans work great!)

What about the cost?

The cost is $275 for youth campers, $250 for adult campers. This covers everything; meals, housing, and materials for home repairs, and your official FredCamp T-shirt!
