Help Send a Scout to Camp this Summer!

Alex is a Scout in Troop 1872 in Anaheim and looking forward to attending summer camp this year at Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley. According to his Scoutmaster, he is a “leader and participates in every way possible. He goes to every camp and is always willing to help.” Although he has done his best to raise the money to go to Scout camp, he and his family need some extra help. His family struggles financially and a campership would be able to make up the difference

And that's where you can make a difference.

Will you please join with others to help us raise the necessary dollars to send Alex and other deserving Scouts to summer camp this year? We especially need your help since some long-time campership funding sources that we have relied on in the past have been discontinued.

You may make your gift easily online at whatever amount you choose. You can also let your friends and associates know about the need and ask them to support too.

Thanks for doing your part to make a difference in the life of a young Scout!
