SCI’s Workcamp Promotion Storm for 2016 has just finished and we are still feeling the ripples of the storm! We were overwhelmed by the high quality material that was prepared for the day by SCI branches and so far, with a quick overview of the day, we can see that there were many SCI volunteers and branches that actively took part spreading the word about workcamps on social media and making some noise about our database that is bursting with short-term voluntary projects.
