Rancho Alegre
Fire Fund:

Official Los Padres Council Fund for the Re-Building of Rancho Alegre

On July 8, 2017, the Whittier Fire broke out about 1:30 pm. The winds drove the flames over the camp destroying most of the structures ot both the Main Camp and at Larsen Meadow. Rancho Alegre has been the Council's home camp for 52 years.

There is insurance, but additional funds are needed to bring the camp back on line. To make a difference, please donate today.
