Honor Walkway
It is our pleasure to offer you the chance to be a part of Camp Kingsley's Walkway of Honorthat will be installed as the entrance to The Robert Barnes, Sr. Welcome Center. This walkway will greet every amazing individual whom sets foot at Camp Kingsley as they begin their spectacular adventures!
 
In recognition of gifts of $250 or more, payable over five years, donors who would still like to be included in our walkway may fill out up to three lines of text, with 16 characters in each line. The size of the paver, tile, or stone will be determined by the amount of your generous gift (ranging from 4”x4” to over 12”). Pinko’s Landscaping of Rome, NY is looking at donating the labor for a walkway and possible firepit where the Scouts will gather just outside the Welcome Center. A donor wall of honor will include a list of all donors on the inside of the building.
 
Please return the linked form with the words as you would like them to appear (including spaces between words) by November 1, 2021.
