Attending Camp Lassen is a wonderful experience for the young men of Northern California. Boys will participate in activities that unique to a Scout Camp environment and would never recieve in any other type of program. Many of our youth come from economically challenged families and they depend on donations to be able to go to camp. The Golden Empire Council allocates $3,500 per year to assist families who are unable to make the full attendance fee of $310 for Scouts, $179 for Cubs.
Donating to the campership fund will increase the number of boys who are able to enjoy the Camp Lassen experience. It's a wonderful way to invest in our community and the future leadership of our country. Our Association will ensure that if you don’t want to fund improvement projects, or you have that bit of extra income and want to help send a Scout to camp, we’ll make sure it happens. Last year over 50 Scouts were able to go to camp through a campership fund program.
With your help, we hope to do better in the coming years.
The Boy Scout camp fee for 2011 is $310.00 and Cub Scout Camp is $179.00.
