Work Week Activities


Besides the time you spend working with your crew on the various projects, the auction and other activities are a fun diversion.  

All Week:

  • The Silent Auction When you’re packing, be sure to include new or gently used items to donate for this year’s auction. There will be a table set up to receive your donations in Ford Dining Hall during registration on Sunday afternoon. The auction will be in place by Monday at lunch. This annual event has grown each year and is an enjoyable way to provide funds for Work Week projects. 
  • The Cage Athletic Center will be available to use throughout the week. Pick up your guest pass at registration.

Theme dinners:
Monday night’s dinner will have a Sports Theme—wear your favorite team’s colors or jerseys. Todd Brooks, Athletic Director, and other coaches will speak and answer questions regarding Berry Athletics. Be sure to bring clothes for the Patriotic Night dinner on Wednesday. We will honor our veterans with a patriotic medley.
