The Utah State Elks Association Major Project is Camp Wapiti. Located in Settlement Canyon near Tooele, Utah, Camp Wapiti (pronounced Wp-i’-t — a Shawnee Indian word for “white rump” — a large deer or elk) opened for camping in 1994. With an elevation of 5,200 feet, the camp has a mountain setting, is close to goods, services, hospital and it is at a medically acceptable altitude for cystic fibrosis clients. Camp Wapiti is a fully charitable 501C-3 corporation, has no paid employees, is staffed entirely by volunteer  labor and its Board serves at their own expense. The Utah Elks and Ladies of Elks are major sponsors of the Camp. Each Elks Lodge constructed a sleeping cabin, the Ladies constructed the dispensary and contributions from Elks, governmental agencies and charitable foundations built the lodge, swimming pool, arts & crafts building, pavilion, shower facilities and other infrastructure. More than $1.75 million has been spent to date to develop the camp.
