Roy and Ellen Brigman founded Camp Roy-El in 1952. Over 40 years they welcomed 795 campers with physical disabilities.
After the camp closed, the passion of the Brigmans and Camp-Roy El continued through the Camp Roy-El Scholarship Endowment, created in 1992.
Looking back 25 years, 100 scholarships have been awarded to college students dedicated to helping those with disabilities. And, through the power of endowment, Roy and Ellen Brigman, and all of those who loved and were impacted by Camp Roy-El, are giving it forward, forever.
What impression will you make? Let's give it forward, together.
The Bertha Vos Legacy Scholarship was established by Bertha Vos parents as a way to preserve the school's legacy after its closing in 2008. The Scholarship will make an annual award in the graduating year of each of the classes that attended Bertha Vos Elementary during the 2007-2008 school year.
