Eagle Scout John P. Ward was a dedicated Scouter. John served as Scoutmaster of Troop 728, Lodge Adviser, Wood BadgeTrainer and Course Director, Scoutmaster of two GNYC Jamboree Troops and staff on multiple Jamborees and National Order of the Arrow Conferences. He was a Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, Silver Beaver and President’s Award recipient and a dedicated trainer of youth and adults over several decades. Shortly before his passing, John agreed to become Chairman of the Greater New York Councils Training Committee.
The construction of this new facility will serve as a testament to John’s life of leadership and service. The John P. Ward Training Camping Area will benefit Scouts and Scouters that visit the Reeves Training Center at Alpine Scout Camp.
The new camping facilities will be used for National Youth Leadership Training, Wood Badge, and other training courses. (Learn more and donate)
