Group Workcamp Middleton, Ohio

On the banks of the Great Miami River, the city of Middletown has a rich history of canal boats and steel making. But when manufacturing declined in the 70s and 80s, things spiraled downhill. People lost jobs and hope and their beloved homes suffered.

Middletown’s housing stock was largely built in the early 20th century and senior citizens and those with disabilities struggle to keep their homes safe and free of building code violations. This is a community that needs you and will welcome your helping hands.

At this Workcamp, you will join hands with over 200 local volunteers to make a huge impact on the community! Plenty of skilled local project advisors will be on hand to show you how to tackle your project every step of the way. This is one camp you do not want to miss!

For ages 14+

Where

Named for its nearly equal distance between Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio, Middletown is located near Ohio’s famous Kings Island amusement and waterpark as well as many other local attractions.

You can spend some free time exploring the many options offered in Cincinnati, such as the zoo, the aquarium, a Cincinnati Reds baseball game, and more! Or head the other way toward Dayton for unique dining and the U.S. Air Force Museum!

You will stay at a local school that is fully air-conditioned.

What We Will Do

How You’ll Serve

Projects will include painting, building wheelchair ramps and porches, and much more. Plenty of skilled local project advisors will be on hand to help you tackle your project.
