News & Press Releases
Around 400 teenagers and adults will arrive in Dexter on July 21 to work on and improve homes of the elderly,
disabled, and other residents. They will work on various projects from the 22nd to the 26th.
The workcamp provides free home repairs through Group Missions Trips, sponsored locally by the Town of Dexter,
and The First Baptist Church. Over 70 projects have been approved and will be done by the volunteers who come to Dexter.
Group Mission Trips is a non-profit, interdenominational Christian Volunteer home – repair organization out of Fort Collins, Colorado.
This summer there will be 35 different Workcamps with over 14,000 volunteers going into communities across the United States.
These volunteers are members of church youth groups that volunteer a week of their summer to go into communities working to help people
make improvements in their homes. Each volunteer pays a registration fee that covers the costs of food, insurance, and building materials.
The volunteers will be housed at the Ridge View School during their time in Dexter. This service to our community would be impossible
without the cooperation of many people and organizations from our area and the workcamp headquarters in Colorado. Some of the local
businesses and organizations that are donating to this worthy project are: Dexter Kiwanis, Sunshine Club of Dexter, Hannaford Supermarket,
Lakeshore Restaurant, Gerrrard W. Rudmin O.D., Dexter Revitalization Committee (DRC), Ace Hardware, Dexter Lumber, The Eastern Gazette,
Dunkin, and the Dexter Fire Department.
