About The Work We’ll Be Doing
The YouthWorks Kids Club in Leech Lake meets a real need in the community, as there are not many options for kids during the summer months. YouthWorks service projects in Leech Lake include minor home repair, painting and yard work. In the evenings, enjoy a night of food and fellowship at a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2002.
Expectations Prior to the Trip
Youth are expected to be active in faith growing activities as they prepare for the mission trip. This includes attending Sanctuary regularly to grow as a community.
Transportation & Housing
We will make the trip by rental vans and will be staying at a school or church during the week & at a hotel the last night of the trip.
Evening Activities and Outings
In the evenings, learn from local friends about the community, experience a taste of downtown Cass Lake, MN, and enjoy a community cookout. On the way home we’ll stay someplace fun…TBD.

Kids can sell car wash cards to friends, family, or others and make about $20 per card sold. Cards are sold for $40 and include 5 Ultimate Car Washes.
