Spring BreakOut is unique with respect to its flexibility and service opportunity. Groups choose their own dates and consult Mountain T.O.P. for availability.
For two days, groups repair, remodel, or begin new projects within the camp in order to help Mountain T.O.P. remain operable year-round.
For the other two days, groups are also engaged within the community through home repair projects such as bedroom or bathroom renovation, roof repair, floor replacement, drywalling, painting, or any other expressed need. Projects are planned based on the skill levels of group participants.
Located on the Cumberland Plateau, Mountain T.O.P's service area spans across seven Appalachians counties. Three of those counties are economically distressed-ranked in the worst 10% of the nation. This region is often referred to as the "Forgotten Appalachia." It is our goal as a ministry to meet the community's four needs and to educate participants about rural Appalachia and the solutions that are currently being implemented.
