Friends of Treasure Valley (FoTV)
‘The Friends’ are a group of dedicated alumni and friends who volunteer their skills and time to help maintain Treasure Valley Scout Reservation. The group was organized in 1994 by Clifford Anderson and Al Swenson. Still going strong, members work with the camp ranger to complete multiple projects throughout the year.
According to Cliff, “The ranger can’t do it all by himself. Treasure Valley’s a big scout camp and there’s always a list of things to do. We give the ranger a hand and enjoy the camaraderie of each other’s company. Some of the guys have a history with Scouting but others just like to help and enjoy time spent at the camp. We feel good about what we accomplish and we pace ourselves – if some of us can’t work in the cold, we don’t – there will be more jobs to do when it warms up.”
The Friends of Treasure Valley meet at the Training Lodge at camp every Wednesday morning. All are welcome to join.
