The Notre Dame Alumni Association’s annual Family Volunteer Camp in July is remembering Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., with its first-ever theme, “Honoring Father Ted through participating: An event deeply rooted in his values.”

The camp invites alumni families to campus to spend a week doing volunteer work at community partner sites and to reconnect with the University of Notre Dame and each other. Children ages 9 and older come with their parents to participate in service projects while learning about the University’s commitment to giving back. After Father Ted passed away at the age of 97 in February, the camp’s organizers wanted to honor his legacy of service by dedicating this year’s camp to him.
 
Molly Butler, interim service programs director for the Alumni Association, said, “We have a lot of young kids who have experienced Father Ted through their parents. It’s really neat that they come do this.”
