Every May, the university sponsors the Hesburgh Month of Service encouraging students and alumni to find ways to serve their communities. The Notre Dame Club of Omaha is hosting a service event on Saturday, May 19 at the Jesuit Academy Summer Camp at 245th and Q. This is a family friendly event (many trails, playground equipment, and courts for the kids) and lunch will be provided in between the AM and PM volunteer sessions.
Jesuit Academy is an all boys, Catholic School located at 2311 N. 22nd Street in North Omaha. The school serves young men, from the community and beyond, in grades 4-8 and runs a summer program at the camp on 245th St. All students receive a scholarship sponsored by private donors to attend the school and their families pay a small monthly tuition. The summer program begins in June and takes place at the camp. We will need volunteers to do the following:
– Clean the main buildings to prepare for summer classes
– Complete small repairs around the camp
– Help clearing and marking outdoor trails around the camp
– Moving gravel and filling in potholes on the main road into the campgrounds
If you would like to help in the morning or the afternoon, please complete the form at the link below. We would like to get an idea of how many to expect at each session. Lunch will be provided around noon.
