The Friends of Treasure Valley is a group of retirees (or those wishing they were retired) who volunteer their skills 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 Anderson, “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.”
In 2013, the Friends of Treasure Valley assumed responsibility for the complete rehabilitation of the Arrowman Lodge. Members even contributed materials to ensure the work was completed in a timely fashion. The Mohegan Council is grateful to the members of Friends who dedicate their talent and financial resources to benefit the camp on behalf of the Scouts who enjoy the facilities year-round.
Friends of Treasure Valley meet at the camp every other Wednesday morning.
