Mid-Ohio Valley Work Camp is a project organized to give young people an opportunity to serve God by serv-ing others who are in need.
All participants who attend Work Camp will be housed in the dormitories at Ohio Valley University in Vienna, WV.
Breakfast is mandatory for everyone and will be served in the cafeteria. Lunches will be provided at local churches and dinner will be served in the evenings back at OVU. Tuesday night is dinner on the town with your site group. Please bring money for dinner on Teusday. There is also a late night canteen in the dorms - bring money for that, too.
The house that will be painted during the week are re-ferred to as work sites. The tasks at the work sites in-clude scraping, painting, caulking, minor repairs, clean-ing up, and perhaps light yard work. Most of the houses are owned by people who are living on limited incomes or by senior citizens who cannot do the work them-selves.
Each site will be inspected for hazards or safety issues before Work Camp begins. First aid is available at each site. Water will be provided at each site during the day. Our policy is always Safety First.
Because of our safety first policy, workers will not be allowed to have their cell phones on the job sites. Phones will be collected and placed in a box during the work day.
The cost is $85 per teen and $25 per adult. See registration form for family discount. All participants must fill out a Registration Form, Medical Form, and Release Form. Give the forms and payment to the youth leader by May 1st. Registrations postmarked after deadline will be charged a $25 late fee per person.
