Work Camp at Frakes

The Frakes work camp has its base of operations at the original site where Hiram Frakes began Henderson Settlement. Although the Settlement has been able to provide many services to the community, there is still a great deal of need. We are excited that you're considering coming and helping in this very valuable ministry!

In our Online Library you will find documents and information that you'll need to be ready for your visit to Henderson Settlement. We ask that you start with the checklist, and that will guide you through the steps that you need to take to prepare for and organize your trip.

Work Camp at the White Oak Center

In the 1990s, requests for assistance increased in the area around White Oak, Tennessee, because this community has challenges similar to those in the Frakes community. Teams working on homes in the area were at a disadvantage having to travel seventeen miles back to the Settlement for food and lodging.

The White Oak Center opened in the summer of 2001, and since then, during the summer months, many teams have been based out of this facility. Up to 48 people can be housed and fed. Work teams are scheduled through the Work Camp Office at Henderson Settlement, and a project manager is on site at White Oak to assist the teams during working hours.
