Event Details

A volunteer event for people who care about Nissokone to enjoy a weekend at camp and help prepare for the upcoming summer of magic and adventure. Volunteers welcomed from Friday evening through Sunday at noon. We'll be putting in the boats and docks, building picnic tables, signs and small porches as well as readying the cabins and grounds. Our first meal together at camp will be breakfast on Saturday through brunch on Sunday, meals and cabins are provided at no charge in gratitude for your service. Donations to help send kids to camp are welcomed, but not required.

  • Dietary concerns- If you have food allergies,  special dietary restrictions, please let us know by emailing or by calling our office at 989-739-2801 or emailing rmertz@ymcadetroit.org by Friday 4/20/2018.
  • Cabin space- We'll be trying to foster a 'camp' community atmosphere and may ask volunteers to share space in duplex style cabins. What better place to meet new friends who care about Nissokone? Children must be accompanied by an adult. If you have special cabin requests, please be sure to let us know by emailing rmertz@ymcadetroit.org by Friday 4/20/18.
  • What to bring-Just like going back to camp! In addition to your camp songs (any guitars out there?), remember to pack bedding, toiletries and a towel for the cabins. Plan for cool weather expected in the 50'-60's. Work gloves are encouraged. If you can bring additional tools that would help, please be sure they have your name written on them. Let us know in advance if you have a specific skill or would like to help in a certain area.
  • Auction - We'll be hosting a live auction on Saturday night, led by our spirited, zany camp staff. It's guaranteed to be a fun event. From event tickets and memorabilia to camp gear, all auction proceeds will help send kids to Camp Nissokone. If you have an item you'd like to donate to the auction, please call us or email a description and bring the item with you. (Old Nissokone tshirts and sweatshirts or other memorabilia are eagerly sought after!)
