Summer camp is more than fun for Scouts. It instills self-confidence in a child through challenging activities, new experiences, and developing relationships with others.
Many families need financial support to send their Scout to camp. To assist these families the Northern New Jersey Council has established a Campership Fund. Giving kids the opportunity to get out into nature is an incredible gift. You can make a Scout’s dream come true with a Campership Fund contribution.
“I remember my first day of camp. I was nervous and excited! The nerves didn’t last long but the excitement did. Every day was a new adventure! We cooked, sang and swam together and even had some friendly competitions. When I look back at my childhood, some of my best memories come from my days at camp.”
