Being of Service: Giving back in the best way for you

Service to Camp Ondessonk is an important part of being an active member of the Loyal Lodge of Ondessonk & Tekakwitha.  With so many ways to give back, you are sure to find something that is fun and fulfilling. 

Attend a Lodge Reunion Weekend 

Twice a year, active Lodge Members reunite with friends during a weekend of volunteering to complete service projects that help Camp Ondessonk prepare for the next season. These weekends of work and fellowship are free for active lodge members.  To join the Fall Lodge Reunion September 23-25, 2022, register here by September 14, 2022.

Host a fundraising event to support Camp 

Planning a fundraising event to benefit Camp can be a fun way to give back.  You could ask your friends and neighbors to support you in a hike or walk-a-thon challenge or host a community yard sale or car wash.  Click here to learn more details of how you can be an important contributor by hosting a third-party event. 

Participate in Peer-to-Peer Fundraising 

Peer-to-peer fundraising, or social fundraising, is an easy way to encourage your peers and personal networks to support Camp Ondessonk.  By participating in organized crowdfunding efforts like Camp O Day or asking friends to give to celebrate an occasion like a birthday, you can raise funds and awareness for the mission of Camp.
