Through the MDS Family Program, families can work and serve together in Canada and the U.S.
The projects have age-appropriate work for everyone; even the youngest family members can participate in an MDS volunteer experience!
The days are filled with a balance of family fun, work, good food, activities, campfires and spiritual growth. It's a great way to introduce children to the work of MDS and the spirit of volunteerism.
Although we are sometimes able to offer accommodations, families usually bring their own campers, RVs or tents to stay in. MDS covers the cost of hookups when available; we also provide all meals for volunteers. We can provide more details about accommodations for each project site when you contact us.
While families that participate in the program are often parents and their children, we’ve also had grandparents come with their grandchildren--and families of up to four generations!
The Family Program project location for 2023 will be Camp Palisades in Idaho!
Camp Palisades is a beautiful area and a safe escape to the mountains. More information about this the camp can be found here.
