Work Weekend

May 17-18, 2019

Ramping Up for Summer Camp!

We are so thankful for the men, women, youth, and even children who join us each May to help get Joy of Living Camp ready for the children and youth we will have at Camp this summer! The winter months take quite a toll on the buildings and property, and it's a big deal getting things back in order for a busy summer season.

Won't you join us this year?

Our annual RampUp Work Weekend is scheduled for May 17-18.

You can join us on Friday evening and spend the night or you can come just for Saturday. There is no cost for the the weekend other than the blessing of your presence and help. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

For more information, call Alan at 419-560-4016.
