As a non-profit organization, nearly every activity, event, facility, and training is funded by parents, volunteers and community members.
From popcorn sales, to car washes, our scouts work hard to make their experiences affordable and cost effective.
This year, COL will again be offering our Scouts the chance to raise money to offset the cost of going to summer camp through the Camp Card program! Through selling these cards for $5 in their community, Scouts will keep 50% of each sale as they pay their way to Camp!
Details about the 2014 sale will be out soon.
