The Keepers of the Flame
The Boy Scouts of America has been shaping the lives of youth around the country since 1910. You, our generous supporters, have been making this happen. The Utah National Parks Council is grateful for all of the donors, volunteers, and sponsors who support Scouting avidly in our community. We are especially thankful for the members of the Keepers of the Flame.
The Keepers of the Flame is a giving society dedicated to Scouting. They provide vital financial support that is essential to the strength and legacy of Scouting in the state of Utah. They perpetuate Scouting by providing the resources necessary for Scouting programs, camps, facilities, and other activities.
To honor those who give, artist Jon McNaughton created Sacred Fire. This masterpiece displays Scouting founder Sir Robert Baden-Powell around a campfire with LDS Prophets involved in Scouting. Each new member of the Keepers of the Flame receives this painting.
Eric Dowdle Painting
Last year renowned folk artist Eric Dowdle also created a piece recognizing Scout supporters in our community. Some of our staff, notable donors, and members of the Keepers of the Flame are depicted in this painting turned puzzle.
Donor Appreciation Days
Being a member of the Keepers of the Flame also means you are invited to special events hosted by our Council. Some of these events include groundbreakings, exclusive camp events, and Donor Appreciation Days. There will be an upcoming event at Maple Dell Scout Camp in June where Keepers and their family will be welcomed to our busiest camp. They will enjoy dinner and networking while having the opportunity to fly down the zip-line and let arrows go at our new archery range.
The Boy Scouts of America help our youth build character, become participating citizens, develop personal fitness, and learn to do hard things. You can help invest in the future of Scouting by joining the Keepers of the Flame.
