Campaign for 2020 to Leave No Stone Unturned

You can leave camp...but camp never leaves you! In 2020, Camp Notre Dame will celebrate its 60th anniversary! To mark the occasion, we set our sights on the campers of the future by committing ourselves to leaving no stone unturned to give our campers the very best.

Campaign Goals

"CARE Garden" - $25,000

The CARE Garden will feature a new bell tower and provide a beautiful entrance to the campfire circle. You can commemorate your CND experience and help build Camp's new CARE Garden by purchasing a customized Celebration Stone. These Celebration Stones give you the chance to make your great experiences at Camp Notre Dame a lasting gift to the campers of tomorrow. To add your memories to the CARE Garden, please order online now or print an order form and return it along with payment to the CND office.
