Volunteer Camp

University of Notre Dame families will return to campus this summer to help serve the greater South Bend community as part of the Notre Dame Alumni Association’s 18th Family Volunteer Camp.

Each year, the camp enables alumni to introduce their children to the University’s mission of serving others. Families live on campus for a week and spend much of their days tackling a variety of service projects with some 23 community partners. The work can vary from visiting the residents at Healthwin Specialized Care to helping rehab Perley Primary Fine Arts Academy to assisting Unity Gardens at its main location.

This year, for the first time, the camp has expanded to cover four weeks. The first week runs June 18-23; the second, June 25-30; the third, July 9-14; and the final week, July 16-21. Because the camps have become so popular, participants are chosen by a lottery. This year’s participants include 100 families, including 46 who previously attended.
