Start Your CAMP VOLLO Experience

Volunteer New York! presents Camp Vollo, a free two-week virtual volunteer camp experience for local changemakers. What does VOLLO stand for? It's a call-to-action about inspiring and empowering volunteers locally to build strong, healthy, and resilient communities.

Click here to sign up and get started today!

Our easy-to-follow Camp Vollo Activity Book includes two weeks of structured volunteer assignments and goals to create a positive impact in your community.

Camp Vollo is ideal for middle and high school students, although younger students are also welcome. Camp features daily DIY volunteer activities that were chosen to introduce campers to a variety of local nonprofits and issues facing our community while providing appropriate context and resources to further the learning when possible. Each activity was also designed to ensure safe social distancing. Camp Vollo issue areas include community building, social justice, saving the planet, and COVID-19 relief.
When: July 12, 2021 - August 27, 2021
Duration: 2 Weeks (or any 10 days of your choosing)
Location: Your home / community / virtual
For: Middle & High School Youth / Ages 11-18
(For those 12 and under it is required to sign up with a parent/guardian) 
Cost: Free (with the option to pay what you wish to support Volunteer New York! programming)
Volunteer Recognition: Campers who successfully complete Camp Vollo by August 27, 2021 will receive a Changemaker Certificate, community service letter, and an exclusive invite to a Volunteer Project at a later date
