Leave a Lasting Impression.  Here's How.
Camp Roy-El Scholarship Endowment

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.

Women's Auxiliary of Crystal Downs Country Club Scholarship and Dr. Roy Vomastek Memorial Scholarship
