Things to Know
Through Detroit’s 300+ year history, we have had our successes and downfalls, just like any city in the world. With the challenges we’ve had, especially within the last 25 years, we’re now making a wonderful comeback. We encourage each mission trip group that visits us to take an evening/afternoon to experience our great comeback city.
Check out the Detroit Historical Society for lots of great information on our history!
Every day you and your team will be responsible for getting from Camp Restore to your work site(s), as we do not provide any transportation for volunteer groups. We recommend bringing or renting minivans or 12-passenger vans as the most convenient and efficient mode of transportation around town. Many groups have also successfully used charter buses.
We don’t suggest relying on taxis/Uber, etc. or public transportation for getting to-and-from worksites. Taxis/Uber, etc. can be costly and public transit often doesn’t provide a quick route to worksites.
That being said, there are good transportation options for your free time. The People Mover is an interesting way to get around downtown, and new light rail lines are being added.
We provide a hot breakfast each morning at 8 AM. Our breakfast menu changes daily and you may find biscuits, eggs, pancakes and sausage on any given day, as well as cereal every day.
Each volunteer has the opportunity to pack their own lunch at breakfast, from a selection of sandwich materials, chips, fruit and dessert items.
Our dinners are sponsored by a range of local churches who provide a great variety of local cuisine!
We prepare meat-free options for those who prefer not to eat meat. Please let us know at least a week before arrival so we can accommodate anyone in your group. We often serve large numbers and it can be difficult to suit all restrictions and tastes within our limits, but we do endeavor to help meet the needs of our volunteers as much as possible.
Additionally, there is a full-size supermarket within a few blocks of Camp and we’ve made refrigerators available for use.
In order to help deliver the greatest value, we have volunteers assist with meal-prep and clean-up shifts each week, with different teams for each meal. Each shift, volunteers help set up and prepare, serve and assist in clean-up after the meal. Meal prep and clean-up doesn’t take long and shouldn’t interfere with your work day or evening plans.
