UD Campus Ministry 300 College Park
Dayton, OH 45469-0408
In the ministry, with the Salyersville community, the UD students will offer the following programs: A Day Camp for kids 5 to 12, a Teen Center, and visit a local nursing home. The programs for the teens and children will be educational, inter-active and fun. The UD students will also take time to visit with the families of the teens and children who take part in the programs. The hope of the program is to build good and lasting relationships with all the people the UD students work with and visit, and then to continue these relationships by visiting during the school year. Two goals the UD students have for each summer are to learn about the people who live in Appalachia and to appreciate their Appalachian culture. UD students hope to achieve these goals by living and working in solidarity with the Appalachian people, their families, their children and their elderly.
