A kitchen renovation is among improvements completed at Heathcote Scout Camp with a state government COVID-19 stimulus grant.
Heathcote MP Lee Evans said $36,000 was allocated as part of a $1 million program to rejuvenate facilities across a range of scout groups on Crown Land.
"Scouts NSW are extremely deserving of this NSW Government funding injection - they're one of our state's largest and most successful youth organisations, offering an extraordinary variety of activities while building leadership skills, resilience and friendship," he said in a statement..
Region commissioner Bryan Davison said the improvements would make the camp safer for those visiting the camp.
Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the $1 million program helped support jobs and local economies.
"Scouts NSW is among the many community organisations whose activities were severely disrupted by COVID-19," he said.
"The pandemic forced Scouts NSW to suspend their in-person meetings at Scout halls and cancel events that are their backbone for fundraising.".
