Planning to Volunteer for a 2022 Work Camp? If you would like to volunteer for a work camp in 2022, please download the “2022 Intent to Participate Form,” fill it out, and either scan and email or mail it to the IKC Work Camp Registrar listed at the bottom of the form. You will then be added to the volunteer data base. Once a work site is established and dates are made available, you will be contacted by the Registrar to determine your availability.
Join the IKC Disaster Preparedness and Response Ministry Team (DPRMT) who is planning work camps to Kentucky throughout the summer and fall. Currently we are working in Mayfield, Kentucky which was devastated by the December 10-11, 2021 tornadoes. The months of July through October are open for work camps. If you or your group have a preferred week going forward, we can set that up for you. Please let us know at least 6 weeks ahead to allow time for registration and the scheduling of volunteer housing. We typically arrive Sunday evening for an orientation meeting and depart for home on Saturday morning after cleaning the dorms, kitchen, and social gather space.
Below are the details of registration and important documents. There is a maximum of 15 volunteers per week. Anyone is welcome to volunteer, but please note that we are seeking at least a few volunteers with construction experience who would help direct the volunteers.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE AND REQUIREMENTS
The registration deadline is 3 weeks prior to the starting date. All volunteers will need to have completed a background check within the past 5 years.
For more information, click to contact Rev. Greg Denk, Disaster Coordinator, IKC DPRMT, by email.
The registration form asks the volunteers to read two documents:
Background Check Procedure
If you have not had a background check conducted in the past five years and you would like to volunteer for a work camp in 2022, please email the IKC office, to receive an invitation to the Praesidium log-in page to complete your background check. When you log in you will be asked to pay a $12.00 background check fee using your personal credit card. Once you have been approved by Praesidium, the IKC office will be advised, who will in turn advise the DPRMT that you have been vetted.
