Scholarship Fund

As an educational non-profit organization, we do what we can to make sure our prices remain affordable for anyone interested in our programs and camps. In order to do this, we rely on the generosity of our supporters. Donations go directly to providing scholarship opportunities for those groups and camp families with the greatest financial need. Please contact us about donating to our scholarship fund: 410.343.0101 or info@geneseevalley.org.

 

Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to our annual Day of Giving event, we also have opportunities for a variety of community service activities year-round, and enthusiastically welcome volunteers. Volunteer activities in the past have included trail and property maintenance, tree planting, gardening, painting, mulching, and picnic table construction. We have helped a number of scouts earn their badges, and our latest Eagle Scout project involved designing a new ropes course element!
