Flower City Work Camp

Flower City Work Camp is a ministry of Flower City Outreach, an organization that unites Rochester-area churches to deliver a range of services into the City of Rochester.

Each year, students and adults from nearly 60 churches deliver over 30,000 hours of service by improving homes, mentoring youth at basketball and soccer camps, and connecting with younger children in neighborhood Sidewalk Clubs to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to some of the neediest areas of our city.

We help send a small group of our youth students to the camp every year and Adults provide the student workers with meals, supplies, and more.
