The Coosa Lodge is dedicated to improving the camping experience of youth in the Greater Alabama Council. As part of this vision, the lodge makes a substantial financial contribution to the council campership program each year. Camperships are designed to allow scouts with the Greater Alabama Council to attend an in-council summer camp by providing them with financial assistance. Camperships do not cover the full cost of camp; in accordance with Scouting traditions and principals, the Greater Alabama Council recommends that each scout learn money-management skills by participate in council and/or unit fundraisers to take an active participation in their scouting expenses.
At the annual Fall Fellowship and Pow-Wow, the lodge holds both a silent and a live patch auction. Anyone may donate patches. The proceeds of this auction go directly to the lodge’s campership contribution. At the 2008 Fall-Fellowship Live Patch Auction, the Coosa Lodge raised enough money to pay for twenty-two campership scholarships! Thank you to everyone who donated patches and bid on the items!
For more information on the campership program, to contribute, or to get an application, contact the Lodge Chief or Lodge Adviser. Their contact information can be found on the Lodge Officers & Advisers page.
