James E. West Fellowship Program

A West Fellowship is available for gifts of cash or marketable securities designated to the Council endowment fund. Donors may make cumulative gifts to reach the levels beyond Bronze membership.

Summer camp is the pinnacle of a young person’s Scouting experience during each year. However, many Scouts in the New Birth of Freedom Council are unable to attend camp because of their family’s financial circumstances. Camperships provide needy Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers with the financial assistance necessary to attend summer camp, which will create memories that will last a lifetime. Funds for camperships are provided by generous donors who feel strongly that every Scout should be able to attend and experience summer camp regardless of their personal situation. Please consider a gift to the council’s campership fund by making a donation today to help our Scouts in need. To make a donation to help send a Scout to summer camp, please click here. Thank you!
