In 2019, we hosted a camp at the Howe Community Center and a camp at Stroh Church of God. In Howe, the kids worked at ARK Bookstore, cleaned windows of businesses, worked at Lima Presbyterian Church and cleaned a house of an elderly couple. They took part in team building and leadership building activities, stress management and development of healthy coping skills. They also painted flower pots, planted seeds and distributed to businesses in the community. We ended the week by kayaking at Mongo Trading Post.

In Stroh, our teens cleaned the fire station, cleaned windows for businesses and planted large flower pots and distributed around town. We did some crafts that they then gave to friends or family.
