Polaris Donates $100,000 in ATVs to Local Youth Camps
Polaris has joined forces with the Boy Scouts of America and the Salvation Army. Polaris has donated 28 ATVs to the Boy Scouts’ Northern Star Council’s Tomahawk Scout Reservation, the second largest Boy Scout camp in the United States, and the Northwoods Camp, run by The Salvation Army. The donation is valued at $100,000.
“Our partnerships with Boy Scouts of America and The Salvation Army offer outstanding opportunities to demonstrate how ATVs can be a positive educational tool for youth,” says Scott Wine, Polaris CEO. “By introducing young people to the sport in a manner that emphasizes the importance of safety and responsible ATV ownership, Polaris can entice a new generation into the powersports community while providing a great experience for thousands of young people.”
The Boy Scouts of America’s Northern Star Council’s Tomahawk Scout Reservation, located in Birchwood, Wis., is the destination for approximately 6,500 Boy Scouts, Webelos and adult leaders every summer. The new ATV program at the camp encompasses all aspects of safe ATV operation and ATV maintenance. Boy Scouts enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to earn merit badges for their participation.
