Memorial Day Work Weekend

The first Memorial Day Work Weekend at Camp Michigania took place in 1963, with a number of committed volunteers lending a hand to prepare camp for the approaching summer season. That tradition continues to this day with nearly a hundred volunteers participating each year.

Celebrate your Memorial Day Weekend with other University of Michigan alumni at Camp Michigania. Spend your weekend helping with a variety of tasks that directly contribute to a successful summer. In past years, projects have included archery repairs, landscaping, painting, sewing, and building repairs. Each year has different needs, providing a unique experience each holiday.

Camp Michigania would love to have your assistance! As a thank-you for your efforts, we invite you to stay at Camp with us for the weekend, free of charge. We’ll even provide the meals!

Arrival time starts at 3 p.m. Friday; check-out time is 12 p.m. Monday. Meals and activity information will be emailed to registrants as the weekend approaches.

UPDATE: It’s with a heavy heart we’ve made the extremely difficult decision to cancel MDWW 2021. We’ll miss our volunteer family and hope you’re able to recreate your own work weekend wherever you might be! Click here for more information.
