Send A Scout To Camp

1 06 2011

Thursday June 2nd is the annual WTCM Send Every Scout to Camp Radio Fundraiser. Between 7am – noon we’ll be talking with Scouts and former Scouts who have benefited from their time at Camp Greilick. Our goal is to make sure every Scout in the northern region can attend the camp. Money raised through our on-air fundraiser goes toward “camper-ships,” which help those families who cannot afford the full camp fees. No Scout gets a free ride! Families in need will receive help with the fees, but must raise the rest of the money.

You can pledge a contribution during our broadcast Thursday morning, or donate on line at the Scenic Trails Council website here:

We’ll read the names of all donors, individuals and businesses, on the air. You can make a pledge in the name of a former or current Scout, or any supporter of the Scouts.
