The Journey of Hope and Build America Teams will be arriving in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, August 12.
Over the course of five days, Build America, a program created through The Ability Experience, the philanthropy owned and operated by Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, worked on various construction projects around the camp for people with disabilities and also took the time to create bonds with campers that will not soon be forgotten.
Today we were back to work on the horse run-ins and the ramps that we started building yesterday. We also began building a fence to enclose a five-acre horse pasture that will give the camp the ability to have many more horses on their property.
When you picture a pack of fraternity brothers traveling around the country doing construction work, you're probably tempted to imagine the Hollywood version Ñ a beer- and testosterone-fueled road trip, "Animal House" with power tools. With Pi Kappa Phi, it's a tale of dedication, inspiration, and service.
A group of college fraternity brothers from all across the country are giving up six weeks of their summer to help kids with disabilities. This week, the eighteen brothers from Pi Kappa Phi are at Camp Wawbeek in the Dells.
If I started a sentence with the following; twenty fraternity brothers from Pi Kappa Phi got together for the whole summer to . . . The majority of people would not assume its fraternity men dedicating their entire summer to service.
On Sunday, July 12, to Thursday, July 16, a team of 22 fraternity men will be in Rocky Mount at Wonderland Camp as a part of a service-learning construction event.
