Seeking Scholarship Applicants for Camp

BRDC is seeking applicants for full scholarships ($450 value) to our Mount Rogers Wilderness Camp.

The Rudolph and Louise Tilson Scholarship Fund was generously provided by The Friends of Mount Rogers in support of youth exploration of the Mount Rogers area.  Rudolph Tilson absolutely loved Grayson county and the Mount Rogers area, and was an active Boy Scout leader, avid camper, and outdoorsman his whole life.

The Friends of Mount Rogers is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area by supporting it and its heritage through education, cooperation, financial assistance, and volunteer service. For more information, visit:
