Over 70% of Greater New York Councils Scouts receive some form of assistance to pay for camp. This is what is called a “Campership,” and now your donations can go directly to this important part of Scouting. Giving kids the opportunity to escape the city and get out into nature is an incredible gift, and while at camp Scouts learn teamwork, self-confidence, respect for the environment and helpfulness while building lasting friendships. Help send a child to camp today!

Your financial investment in the Greater New York Councils changes lives. That may sound like an exaggeration to some, but not to the over 46,000 boys and girls in our programs. Each day we help them to build self-confidence, to learn new skills and teamwork, and to work towards developing their full potential. There are few greater gifts you can give a young person.

We are grateful you are entrusting your philanthropic dollars with us.

If you would like to make an in-kind gift of equipment or services to the Alpine Scout Camp, please contact:
