A Fun Project for Kids

We have created a fun project perfect for a Religious Education or Sunday school class, or anyone who wants to help QWI. It is a template for a small cardboard church that is also a collection box for donations to QWI. To open and print this "pdf" file, you will need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available free from Adobe for most computer platforms. This project works best if printed from a PostScript printer onto card stock.

Pass Out Our Brochure

Contact the Director at the main office if you would like to order copies of our brochure to pass out or to keep in your Meeting.

Organize Your Own Workcamp

In the past we have held workshops for those interested in organizing their own workcamps, and we've assembled a workbook and other materials that may be helpful. Contact the Director at the main office if you are interested.

Positions Available

Each workcamp project has special positions to be filled including Project Director, Volunteer Coordinator, Friends in Residence, Cook, and Safety Officer. (See Who's in charge? in the Workcamp FAQ.)
