Ways of Giving

The JACK KOHLER CAMPERSHIP ASSOCIATION sincerely hopes that you can help us in one form or another to continue helping Scouts get that TEN MILE RIVER experience well into the next millennium. A short stay at T.M.R. can mean so much in a young mans life. Won’t you please help us, help those scouts. If you’ve spent time at T.M.R., you’ll understand.


Membership in the association is open to all. There are NO membership restrictions! No Scouting affiliation is required for membership in the association, just a belief in the Scout principles, Oath and Law. Membership is by individual and/or family. Membership is $10 per year, $25 for a three-year term, or $150 for Lifetime Membership.

Heritage Society

On display in the Ranger Station at the Alpine Scout Camp in NJ, the Association sponsors a plaque honoring those that have helped make the Scouting program an enriching environment for young men. With currently more than 140 names on display, this plaque is a beautiful way to enshrine a person, place or event. Your troop, co-worker, scoutmaster, parent can all have there nameplate put on here for all to see. A minimum donation of $150 will allow us to add the name and phrase on this plaque (IE: Joe Smith - Scoutmaster Troop 324; Mary Jones - Scouting Mom; Al Klein - A friend of Camp Man).

Memorabilia Sales

The major way we raise our campership funds is by selling old scout patches and memorabilia that have been donated to us. A simple little patch, collecting dust in your drawer can get us $5, $10, $50, even as much as $100 if it is one that some collector wants and needs. Scout camp patches, O.A. patches, rank badges, pins, old merit badges, all can be converted into a weeks stay at T.M.R. for some Scout. If you request, we can furnish a tax letter for donated memorabilia.

Special Occasion & Commemorative Donations

We accept donations to honor, and/or memorialize people. When we receive such a donation, a letter is sent out informing a family of a donation that has been made in that person’s name, and by whom. This is a wonderful way to remember, or thank a person whether within, or out of scouting.
