Preserving Camp Glen Gray
Camp Glen Gray is one of the oldest continuously operating Boy
Scout camp in the nation and among the first camps specifically built as a Scout
camp. Occupying a critical location in the Ramapo Highlands, Glen Gray is a
pristine wilderness oasis amid the ever-expanding sprawl of northern New Jersey.
Tens of thousands of boys have learned to camp, understand our environment, and
most importantly, came to rely on themselves and one-another, on its varied
terrain since 1917.
In January 2001, the Northern New Jersey Council of the Boy
Scouts put Glen Gray up for sale. In response, a grass-roots volunteer
organization sprung up from the 5,000 parents and scouts that use the camp in
order to save Camp Glen Gray.
Ending 13 months of negotiations, the sale of Camp Glen Gray
was officially completed on February 5, 2002, when the NNJC sold the 750 acres
to the County of Bergen and the Trust for Public Land.
The core area of the camp—containing Lake Vreeland and approximately 20
buildings—will be endowed and maintained by the Friends of Glen Gray (FOGG), a
nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Glen Gray for camping,
environmental education and scouting activities through the efforts of hundreds
of volunteers and contributors.
of Glen Gray – FOGG – needs you to ensure the future of this invaluable
resource to youth and the environment. Your generous gift will preserve the
pristine forest amid endless sprawl and help guarantee future generations the
chance to develop their character through outdoor experiences. You may be a
former scout who has reached a pinnacle where philanthropy is its own reward.
The bottom line is the same: Glen Gray needs your help!
to Camp Glen Gray
need to raise $1
to set up an endowment to manage and run the camp. Every pledge moves us closer
to the goal of preserving Glen Gray – can we count on you?
