Cornel Rylaarsdam Memorial Fund
Some families would like to send their son to an international camporee, but they simply don’t have the financial resources to make it work. Job lay-offs, medical expenses, family crisis — we don’t want anything to stand in the way of a boy having the opportunity to participate in this great adventure. Whatever the reason, the CRMF is available to help pay part or all of the registration fees for individuals who need help. The request is reviewed by the Steering Committee of the International Camporee.
