To support the rebirth of Camp Silverado, allowing our alumni family access to Camp while partnered with the USFS in returning it to an active high sierra summer camping, hiking, meeting, and learning place.

Guiding the USFS toward making sure Camp remains accessible for the future use of Camp as a place for "scout craft" and outdoor education. Promoting and sharing in a wilderness experience which is unique to this special place on earth.

Failing to achieve its mission, FOCS  BOD will be obligated to refund unused funds back to any non-profit youth organizations that have participated in supporting our mission. No refunds will be provided to individuals, families, or businesses.

    FIRST STEP -  Registering aka Subscribing as a visitor is FREE - This will allow us to stay in touch with you no matter what happens to the camp.  Donating to the cause is always welcomed and we'll think of you warmly as we poke the fire in Camp.

    STEP TWO is to check your memory banks. Have you slept in Camp for four nights?  Does not need to be consecutive. If you have then you are eligible to JOIN.

Doing so, you become a member assisting us by maintaining a base annual Camp budget and  then you help guide us with any additional participation toward achieving our mission. Consider joining at a Lifetime level and avoid those pesky reminders each year.  

    Membership is growing, opportunities to work some sweat equity will increase as will our membership benefits.   What would you like to see?
