On July 13, Volunteer New York! presents Camp Vollo, a free virtual volunteer camp experience for young changemakers who want to volunteer locally.
Our easy-to-follow Camp Vollo Activity Book includes two weeks of structured volunteer assignments and goals to create positive impact in your community. The camp is divided into two distinct tracts for both Elementary (ages 6-11) and Middle/High School (ages 12-18) students.
Ten custom DIY volunteer projects were chosen to introduce campers to a variety of local nonprofits and issues facing our community. Within the Activity Book are resources to provide additional context, as well as age-appropriate book lists to extend the discussion. Issue areas include community building, social justice, and COVID-19 relief.
Got a busy summer ahead? The Camp Vollo program can be completed at your own pace, or started and stopped anytime throughout this summer.
Campers who successfully complete Camp Vollo by August 31, 2020 will receive a Changemaker Certificate, limited-edition stickers, and an exclusive invite to a Group Volunteer Project at a later date.
Camp Vollo Capstone Project
As an optional final task, campers will be asked to reflect on their Vollo experience and complete an imaginative capstone exercise.
Registered campers will have access to a weekly Zoom call led by a Vollo Counselor, during which campers have the opportunity to ask questions, share projects and service ideas, and connect virtually with other changemakers!
