A chance to honor

Over the past decade, BaseCamp 31 has awarded numerous community-based scholarships for both merit and financial need, including the John E. Schaible Jr. Memorial scholarship to graduating seniors who are residents of Hunterdon County or have involvement with BaseCamp.

Whereas much of the early history of the BaseCamp31 organization focused on fundraising efforts, the majority of our funds are generated from member dues and donations from sponsors to help us fund the many deserving people and initiatives in our community.
