Opportunities to get involved !
SLCS has established several ways the community may become involved and support Camp Ah-Ba-Lu-Fa.
Of course, donations are always welcome in the monetary form; be it from a personal, memorial, commercial, or civic source.
Materials, equipment, professional services and volunteer labor are welcomed and appreciated.
Our fundraising sources include:
Unit camping, Family Camping, Pavilion Rentals, Day Use Rentals, Advertising, and Special Event fees.
These combined with funds earned by special events such as: Our Annual Turkey Shoot, Camp Aid, hot dog wagons, promotions, and specific purposes, support most of the operational budget. Grants from various sources complete the financial picture.
Camp Ah-Ba-Lu-Fa has a continued source of service projects available for the interested scout, individual,Unit, and Youth & Civic Organizations.THIS IS A REQUIREMENT FOR ANY OVERNIGHT CAMP USE (per rule number 1).
In addition, since the facility is open to ALL the youth and Civic Organizations of St. Lucie County, and is not an affiliated BSA reservation, the local Eagle Board does consider prospective Eagle Scout Projects.
Camp relies on our community to help with various projects to maintain it and keep it beautiful. Below are some things we think can help us, whether you are a little kid or an adult everyone can help. All Scouts need service hours and we would be grateful for your help. Below are some ideas and areas we need help with. See the Ranger at check-in or Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
