About the Award

About IMPACT Camps

IMPACT Camps provide area high school-aged youth with an affordable, local week community service/urban mission experience. We offer IMPACT camps in the Summer and when feasible during Spring Break.

Students participating in the program spend Monday through Friday from 9 A.M to 4 P.M on a staff-supervised team working on a variety service projects. They will hear from community leaders and engage in reflection activities. Participants will also receive leadership and team-building training, and learn about housing, hunger, poverty, caring for the environment, and other issues facing the local community.

Students should bring their own lunch. Some small snacks will be provided.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, TNVLC will not offer carpool transportation. Students must be dropped off/picked up or drive themselves to/from each service site. You will receive the list of service sites during the week before IMPACT Camp begins.

Weeks available: 

Stay tuned for Summer 2024 dates!

If the entire week is completed, students will receive 35 hours of service.
