Utilizing the proven Camp Restore model of partnering volunteer groups with local community organizations and churches, Camp Restore – Detroit will begin hosting volunteers at Mount Calvary in April, 2017.
Opportunities exist to join in the preparation work already taking place onsite. Those interested in learning more, volunteering or making donations are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 313-527-3366.
Volunteer bookings will officially open in November 2016.
The initial Camp Restore – Detroit season is scheduled to run from April to mid-October, 2017. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with local Detroiters across a range of community-led volunteer projects, while experiencing the food, music and history Detroit has to offer. The titles The Motor City, Hockeytown, Motown, The D, Rock City and the Arsenal of Democracy represent a deep cultural heritage that comprises a significant portion of our core national identity.
Camp Restore – Detroit is the third Camp Restore to be established, following Camp Restore – New Orleans and Camp Restore – Baton Rouge. All three will be welcoming volunteer groups in 2017.
The Camp Restore model grew out of the response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2006. In the past 10 years, nearly 30,000 volunteers have contributed more than 1,000,000 hours in the Greater New Orleans area, completing work on over 500 homes and working with over 100 local nonprofits, churches and schools.
