United Way of Midland County Invites the Community to Join them for their 2024 Days of Action Volunteer Projects at Camp Neyati

The United Way of Midland County is hosting a three-day community-wide volunteer project at Camp Neyati to celebrate Days of Action May 8-10.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing community members up to camp to help us with these projects for Days of Action this year,” shared Katie Bell Pearce, Corporate Relationship Manager at United Way of Midland County. “It’s such a beautiful place and provides really important and meaningful opportunities for kids and families to play, learn and connect with each other and nature. We need around 100 volunteers per day to accomplish our goal of freshening up camp and all are invited and welcome to join us!”

Companies, organizations, work groups, service clubs and individuals are all encouraged to join United Way to help make an impact. The projects will help get camp ready for the upcoming camping season  with fresh paint and stain, cleaning cabins and buildings, outdoor cleanup and more!

Volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and the activities, old clothes are recommended for painting. United Way encourages volunteers to bring supplies like gloves, painting supplies or anything else that would make volunteers comfortable and successful for completing the tasks.

Two volunteer shifts will be available each day, 9am – Noon and 1pm – 4pm. Lunch, volunteer t-shirts, supplies and tools will also be provided by United Way.

ABOUT CAMP NEYATI

Camp Neyati was acquired in 1938 by United Way of Midland County and Kiwanis Club of Midland for the purpose of encouraging wholesome development of youth in the Midland area through camping and outdoor experiences. Thousands of children and families have created lasting memories at Camp Neyati, at the 187-acre camp on the shores of Crooked Lake.

From sailing and swimming to campfires and learning archery skills, the camp has been a favorite resource for many local and regional groups who are looking for a beautiful, safe and diverse camp to provide unique programming.

“So many memories have been made over the 83 years Camp Neyati has welcomed kids and families to camp,” shared Holly Miller, President and CEO at United Way of Midland County. “And so many memories are yet to be made. Each and every volunteer that helps with Days of Action will be part of ensuring local youth have the opportunity to experience the magic of camp – learning new skills, making new friends and enjoying the summer months outdoors. The impact is significant, and we’re so grateful to everyone who joins us in May to make camp beautiful and safe.”
