Student Leaders: Camden, New Jersey

Christmas Break Service Trip

Considered one of America’s most dangerous cities, Camden, New Jersey is not without hope...

Students have the opportunity to spend winter break in Camden, New Jersey, volunteering, serving and learning with Urban Promise, a K-12 Christian school and community development program.  Like many of our Urban Involvement partners in Seattle, Urban Promise gives our students a chance to look at challenging issues with a new perspective and in a new context.

Trip dates: December 12-21, 2013

Estimated Cost: $1000

Host: Urban Promise

Follow the 2013 SPU Camden Team's blog.
