Adirondack Mountains, NY

Partner with local ministries and organizations to meet community needs through work projects, home repair and youth programming.

About Adirondack Mountains

In Warrensburg, your group will partner with the community in park and home beautification projects, maintaining local gardens, serving the elderly, and assisting in facilitating Kids Club programming, while experiencing the beauty of the area’s vast rural wilderness. In the evenings, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the Adirondack Mountains or cool off in Lake George at Million Dollar Beach. As the week comes to an end, you’ll share a meal with neighbors at a community cookout. YouthWorks has partnered with this community since 2007.

Serving in Adirondack Mountains

  • Serve through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or doing other simple work projects.
  • Plan and lead children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities.
  • During the week, students may serve at one or more of the service options.
  • Note that Kids Club does not start until the third week of June, so service before that point will primarily focus on work projects.
  • Groups should plan for a cost of $10 per person for entrance to the Natural Stone Bridges and Caves.

    Parking for Million Dollar Beach is $2 per vehicle per hour in a lot 1/2 block from beach or $10-15 per vehicle for direct beach access parking

We teenagers + We communities

Teenagers need to encounter Jesus outside their normal context to deepen their faith and broaden their perspectives. Plus, communities need to be valued—not as mere recipients but as partners who have stories worth sharing in.

When we bring the two together, incredible things happen.
