Camp Ambassador Program 2018

Greetings Scouters!
I would like to introduce a great new program at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation that allows Scouters, Alumni, units, and organizations to help continue to make our property a premiere camping destination for scouts throughout the Central Region. The Council leadership, Camping Committee, Properties Committee, and Summer Camp Leadership Team are always looking for ways to improve camp facilities and enhance our already diverse program. Here is your opportunity to become vested in the long-term sustainability of our camping program and to help make some of these great ideas become a reality!
