Camperships available

Pack 151 believes every boy should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of camping, and wants to provide the opportunity for registered boys to go to camp. These experiences help boys learn new skills and advance through the ranks of Scouting. The intent of camperships is to ensure that any boy with financial difficulties is not denied the opportunity to attend camping programs. Contact Pack Committee Chair Brandi Werra or Cubmaster Charlie Niven for more info.
