Have you heard? This year kicks off celebrating Emerald Bay’s 100th anniversary, and we’re so excited to have you join in! Since 1925, tens of thousands of campers have visited Emerald Bay to experience a diverse array of activities, like aquatics, shooting sports, and our high adventure/nature/craft programs. Youth also visit our camp to explore the island’s ecosystem through our school-based outdoor science education program, or to simply have a little fun in the sun through our community groups.

On November 16th, the Western Los Angeles County Council will host a gala to commemorate Emerald Bay’s 100th anniversary. During the gala, we will host a silent auction to raise funds which will preserve and expand the programs of our beloved camp and beyond. We invite you to participate in our silent auction by donating one or more items (of particular interest will be for sharing in the talents you have and can be tied back to your experiences at camp. For example, we have commitments for a beautifully framed photograph of the camp itself and a hand-crafted bottle of wine with the camp’s 100th Anniversary logo). You or your business will receive recognition on our event webpage and our social media pages. Tickets to sporting events, vacation packages, novel experiences, gift certificates, and themed gift baskets are just a few other ideas—every donation, big or small, is truly appreciated! Proceeds will be used to further the mission of Scouting at Emerald Bay.

Please complete and return the donation form by November 4, 2024, to Shani Grafman, Director of Development, at [email protected].

Thank you in advance for helping build our future leaders and to help youth be prepared for life.
