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
