Mid-Ohio Valley Workcamp

June 18-22, 2017

 

It's better to serve than to be served. The Mid-Ohio Valley Workcamp is a teen service outreach hosted by Ohio Valley University designed to give teens an opportunity to serve God by serving others. It's also a great time of bonding, growth, and fun. Workcamp has become a favorite event by many of our teens.

Over 300 teens come to Workcamp from churches in Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia to paint and rehab houses.

During the days, teams go to various homes to scrape and paint, and encourage homeowners, most of which live on a fixed income or are senior citizens who are unable to do the work themselves. This  type of outreach has an amazing affect on the community and a deep impact on our youth.

During the evenings, groups are housed at Ohio Valley University where they enjoy breakfast, dinner, and a nightly worship program. Lunches are served by local churches. One evening during the week, work crews go out on the town for dinner together. At the end of the week, homeowners are invited to a special celebration and closing ceremony with all the teens. It's a pretty great time.

Each teen needs to bring one 4" paintbrush. Everything else will be provided. Be sure to download and fill out the three forms below and return them to Grant Knisley. Download the other resources to help you pack and get ready.
