The John Camp Memorial Scholarship Fund
John Camp, a 1955 graduate of the US Naval Academy, served our country as a Naval officer for 20 years, including duty in Vietnam, for which he was awarded a bronze star.   He joined the Navy League of the United States in 1987, and eventually became a volunteer staff member at Navy League HQ in Arlington, Virginia.  For several years, John was the (volunteer) Secretary for the NL Public Relations Committee.   He was also a National Director of the Navy League, and he also served on the Board of Directors of the George Washington Council of the United States Naval Academy Alumni Association.

In January 2007 John was elected president of the Northern Virginia Council of the Navy League, having served the council faithfully in various positions over the years.  Just a year later John visited the Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland with a complaint about breathing, and within a couple of weeks he had major surgery for congestive heart failure.   Many complications followed and John died October 6, 2008.   

We were privileged to have John as a member of the NOVA Council for many years, and in 2009 NOVA Council established the John Camp Memorial Scholarship Fund, to annually award an outstanding Sea Cadet with financial assistance for college or university expenses.  

If you wish to contribute to this important memorial scholarship fund, you may mail a check to the address below, or you may use PayPal.  The PayPal procedure follows below, and you may use it even if you do not have a PayPal account.
