Maury Clancy American Indian Campership Fund

This fund was created in 1971 to help American Indian Scouts attend resident camp. The fund is named in memory of long time national committee member Maury Clancy, who contributed significantly to the Order. Mr. Clancy emphasized the significance of our nation's American Indian culture and worked to encourage the preservation of our American Indian heritage.

Proceeds from the Double Vigil Golf Classic since 2005 have allowed more than 400 American Indian Scouts to attend accredited Boy Scout resident summer camps, raising over $18,000 toward the fund.

Order of the Arrow lodges and sections may contribute "at will" to the fund thereby increasing the fund and allowing for more camperships to be awarded. Donations may be forwarded through the section, or mailed to the national director, Order of the Arrow. Campership funds will be provided for up to 50% of the cost of one (1) week at an official Boy Scouts of America long-term camp. Maximum (50%) reimbursement is not mandatory. To be eligible, a youth must be recognized as being of American Indian Heritage and in need of financial assistance. Final requests should be submitted by local Boy Scout Councils after the Scout attends an accredited BSA long term camp.

Annually, the Indian Campership projection form is available online at Only those councils that reply by the designated deadline are eligible to receive campership funds for the current year.
