What's Included


Camp Frenda is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. On this project, Camp Frenda, a Christian camp that is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, is in need of volunteers who will help construct a new house and reinforce the foundation of an existing structure as well as help with other general maintenance. There is a lot to be accomplished, and Maranatha volunteers will be a huge blessing to this camp facility. Please bring your painting tools, chainsaws and wood cutting tools.
