Jesuit has long partnered with Camp ReCreation and as the Summer 2023 camp planning process has begun, applications and on-campus interviews are now available. 

Camp Basics

Volunteers spend the week working in a 1-to-1 ratio with a camper who has a developmental disability. Summer camp volunteers are required to be at least 16 years of age, but no specific prior experience is needed. 

New volunteers are required to complete an application, interview, orientation and background screening prior to volunteering at our summer camp.

When and Where?

Camp takes place over three weeks of summer at Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake (near Susanville, CA). Transportation is provided to and from camp.

  • Week #1 Sat., June 10 – Sat., June 17 
  • Week #2 Sat., June 17 – Sat., June 24 
  • Week #3 Sat., June 24 – Sat., July 1 

A mandatory training for all new volunteers will take place in May, exact date, time, and location TBD.
