Group Workcamp Rushville, Indiana

In Rushville, the statistics have faces. You’ve heard a lot of talk lately about the decline of the American manufacturing industry. You’ve heard the numbers. Well, in Rushville the numbers come alive—as real people, with real needs and hopes.

Rushville is very much the typical small Midwestern town, located about halfway between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. And like so many small Midwestern towns, it is still very focused on agriculture. But again, like most of the Midwest, many of the people there once made a good living at manufacturing facilities that have moved away, downsized, or simply closed.

Those who choose to stay either struggle to find work or accept what few low-paying jobs remain. Because so many younger people have moved away in search of work, the community is aging. In fact, 15 to 20 percent of the families that live there now depend upon various food assistance programs to survive from one month to the next.

Where

Our local partner here has planned a free concert by a nationally-known Christian artist, followed by a hog roast dinner, for all Workcamp participants on Wednesday afternoon! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to have a ‘free-day’ with your fellow Workcamp participants.

Indianapolis is just an hour away from Rushville! You can explore the many cultural districts in Indy including theater, outdoors, jazz, entertainment, and shopping. The Wholesale District contains Circle Centre Mall with plenty of shopping and many great restaurants, including PF Changs, Chick-fil-A, and A&W. And you don’t want to miss the Canal Walk or the Indianapolis Zoo.

Also just an hour and a half away is Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincy offers many options including the Findlay Market, a public market with fresh foods, handmade goods and entertainment. You could watch a Reds baseball game or head to the Newport Aquarium to pet a penguin and walk across a suspension bridge just inches above nearly 2 dozen sharks! Lazer Kraze has a 3D, multi-level laser tag room and indoor trampoline park. Coney Island has a huge wave pool, water slides and amusement park. There’s so much to do in the area, we can promise you won’t be bored!
