There is no maximum team size, but your team will have to fit in your shack. Teams spend a night in cardboard boxes or constructed shacks in order to draw attention to housing issues, advocate for affordable P1090141housing, and educate participants on Habitat and why everyone should have a safe place to call home!

Each person will be given a list of what to bring.
Each team can bring one item to incorporate in to their shack.
Each team must have at least one adult volunteer who helps during the duration of the event.
Prizes are awarded for the shack constructions, as well as for fundraising!
