About Operation Playhouse

Operation Playhouse is a great team event for small or large businesses, schools and college groups, churches, friends, and more! With your team of 10-12, participants will construct a playhouse that is donated to a local Veteran Family at the end of the day.

Is there anything better than hearing the sounds of a child’s laughter when they discover a new treasure? With Operation Playhouse there is! Come together with your team to build a full sized playhouse that you will personally donate to a local Veteran family. You won’t find a better feeling than seeing first-hand the excitement and joy on a child’s face as they pull their parents into a personalized playhouse built just for them in this incredible one-day event.

Operation Playhouse joins your team of 10-12 to construct a playhouse, about four feet wide by five feet tall, which will be presented to a pre-selected Veteran family at the end of the day. Each team will receive a personal theme for their playhouse based on the interests of the children receiving them. Past themes have included: Fire Truck, Construction, Frozen, Disney Princess, SpongeBob, Pirate, American Flag, and Bruins. No experience is necessary. Our construction staff will be on-hand all day to supervise.

There is a donation requirement of $2,500 per playhouse to participate. These funds help cover the cost of supervision, materials, t-shirts, lunch, and allow us to further our mission of building homes, communities, and hope.

Operation Playhouse events can be catered to your schedule and group. The event has certain space requirements, but can often be accomplished onsite at your company location. Not sure you have the space to host an event? We’ll work with you and local groups to find the perfect place for your team to build. Call us today to start planning your Operation Playhouse event with Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester!
