Sycamore's, Wienke Campership Fund

Sycamore District is honored to have the Wienke Campership Fund. The fund is in memory of Bob Wienke, a long-time Scouter who died in 1993. He was active in the Scouting program for over 50 years. He served as District Commissioner, District Committee, Training and especially Camp Lowden Staff. It is this experience which endeared Camp Lowden to Bob.

Bob believed deeply that no scout should be deprived of the camp experience because of a lack of funds. It is for these reasons the Wienke Campership Fund was started. Each year these camperships are given to Cub Scouts, Webelos, and Boy Scouts who can’t afford camp. It is simply a matter of the leader (Cubmaster or Scoutmaster) filling out the form and turning it into Jeff Moritz. Forms are available for Day Camp, Resident Camp at Camp Lowden or Boy Scout Summer Camp at Camp Lowden.

If awarded a campership, the scout is required to pay 50% of the cost of camp and the campership helps out by paying the other 50%.

If you have any questions please call Jeff Moritz Email at 847-639-9890. Here are the application forms:
