What's Included


Indian Creek Camp is in Liberty, Tennessee and 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.

Every summer Family Camp offers ceramics and it fills up fast because the room is small. The camp would like to make some changes to their existing building to create a larger space for this popular activity. Plans consist of converting the Super Science building into a new Ceramics building and their shop will be converted into the new Super Science building. Volunteers on this project will assist with the renovations (new floors, ceiling and electrical)and an addition as well as some outdoor painting and deck repairs.

Project Stats: 457 vol days*7hrs*$30=$95,970.
