In 1992, the Arizona Elks adopted the Steele Center as a "Major Project". Since then, Members in lodges around the state have contributed more than $4 million.
The Arizona Elks Youth Camp located in the Sierra Ancha Mountains is open and available to all youth groups throughout the state for a nominal fee.
Welcome to the great state of Arizona, the home of one of the many wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. Our motto is "Believe in what you do and it can come true".
In Arizona, Elks help children in many ways. AEMP’s relationship with 2 projects goes back for years.
We have sponsored research at the University of Arizona's "Steele Children's Research Center" since 1992 with over $5 million in donations. We remodeled and modernized the "Arizona Elks Clinic for Children and Young Adults" and provide funds for an endowed chair in Neonatology.
We are also very proud of our Elks Youth Camp located in the Sierra Ancha Mountains in northeast Arizona. This camp is open and available to all youth groups throughout the state for a nominal fee. We will be waiving fees for bona fide youth groups in 2016 on a trial basis
The physician/scientists take care of 28,000 sick children each year at the Steele Children's Research Center. Some of these children have simple problems, like ear infections, others with life-threatening illnesses. Our goal is to give each one of them a better chance at better health. Please consider adding your support to the research efforts at the Steele Children's Research Center - to create a healthier future for all children.
