Builders for Christ will be constructing a new cabin at Camp Phillip in Wautoma, WI. For the last two years, Camp Phillip has had to turn kids way due to a shortage of cabin space. This new cabin will be handicap accessible to give special needs children a more enjoyable experience. The cabin is a walkout ranch style building. The main floor is 3,093 sq. ft. with 2,945 finished in the lower, walkout level.
At this time, we are only accepting sign-ups for Phase 1:
Phase 1 - The goal of this framing phase is to have the building dried in and roofed before
the cold weather comes. The finished roofing will be done by others.
Step 1) Complete the Kingdom Workers Volunteer Application.
This form is required of all volunteers.*
Step 2) Complete the BFC Project Form with more specific details.
Step 3) Sign the Kingdom Workers Volunteer Agreement.
This is required of all volunteers.

* In an effort to maintain current records, we ask that all volunteers fill out the volunteer application. If you served on a BFC project and filled out an application in 2017, there is an option to fill out the Alumni Application, which is considerably shorter. You must complete the Alumni Application prior to the Project Sign Up form.
