Godman Guild’s Health and Wellness Programs and Services

This is a new area of focus for Godman Guild Association.  Although we have had elements of health and wellness built organically into programming, there had not been any intentional focus on Health & Wellness as a whole.  Surveys conducted within the Weinland Park neighborhood and among adult education participants determined that one of the number one barriers to employment is health-related problems.

Camp Mary Orton

Currently Wilderness Bond programming, Adventure Academy, and Leadership & Challenge Center programming are providing Health & Wellness services. Each of these programs is facilitated at Camp Mary Orton and provides opportunities for clients to experience wellness activities that lead to stress, life and workplace pressure management.

Tai Chi and Zumba

Godman Guild offers weekly Tai Chi and Zumba classes to community participants for a minimal fee. Tai Chi begins January 7th, 6:30pm – 7:30pm. The participation fee for the 12-week session is $15. To register call 614-294-5476 Ext. 106.

Blue Bow Tie Bistro Visit the website

Blue Bow Tie Food Bistro’s key goal is to increase the consumption of healthy foods in the community. This social enterprise is an effort to bring affordable, nutritious meal options to the Weinland Park community and surrounding areas.

At the “Bistro”, located at Godman Guild, lunch can now be purchased weekdays between
10:30 AM – 1:30 PM.   Blue Bow Tie Bistro offers a simple variety of lunch options priced between $2.00 and $7.00.  Area residents and program participants are encouraged to take advantage of this new service.

Cash, credit, or debit are all accepted. Fresh baked cookies and a small salad buffet are available each day along with a daily special.   In the summer Blue Bow Tie plans to purchase food grown in the Weinland Park Community Garden @ Godman Guild and offer the freshest “plot to plate” meals available.  Blue Bow Tie is also able to cater meetings conducted at the 6th Avenue Building.  If you have an event or meeting at the Guild, please consider Blue Bow Tie for all your food and beverage needs.
