SerVacations and Great Wolf Lodge Join Forces to Offer Families Unique Voluntourism Experiences

SerVacations, the premier domestic voluntourism company, announced today its partnership with Great Wolf Lodge, the leading family entertainment resort in the United States, to offer a combined voluntourism and vacation experience to families across the country. This new experience will provide group travelers with a unique opportunity to engage in voluntourism and community service while strengthening family connections with their loved ones.


Voluntourism has become increasingly popular in recent years, as travelers seek to do more than just relax on their vacations. SerVacations recognizes this shift in travel trends and sought to offer a combination of vacation and volunteer opportunity for families. With this partnership, families can now experience the joys of voluntourism in a safe, fun, and immersive environment.


“We are thrilled to be partnering with Great Wolf Lodge to offer groups a new way to vacation,” said Fred Carlson, Chief Service Officer of SerVacations. “Our goal is to create a unique and meaningful experience for families while giving back to the communities we serve. We believe that with 19 Great Wolf Lodge locations in amazing destinations throughout the country, this partnership will enable us to meet that goal and have a positive impact on the lives of the families who participate in this program.”


The voluntourism experience will consist of a range of activities, including area sightseeing, enjoyment of the fantastic water park and family entertainment amenities, and of course a volunteer experience. Families will have the chance to participate in a heart-warming volunteer service activity where parents and children get to customize Build-A-Bears for local charities! The program aims to offer travelers a hands-on experience that allows them to engage with local communities, learn about new cultures, and create lasting social impact.


“We are excited to be working with SerVacations to offer families a new and meaningful way to engage in travel,” said Jim Evans, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Great Wolf Resorts. “For us, it’s all about bringing families together and strengthening their connections with each other. By partnering with SerVacations, we can now offer customers the rewarding experience of giving back to the communities they visit.”


The SerVacations and Great Wolf Lodge voluntourism program will be available at most Great Wolf Lodge locations beginning in August 2023. Families can inquire about the program through the SerVacations website, which will provide more information about how to build their own group tour.
