CAMO-COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES & MOBILIZATION OBJECTIVE

 

Welcome to the Department of Wisconsin’s CAMO page!!   What is CAMO? CAMO is Community Activities and Mobilization Objective, a Department initiative to encourage post engagement within our communities via increased participation in events and activities.  The goal is to have VFW posts across Wisconsin to return to our roots as a central part of our communities, to be an active and regular presence in our hometowns, and to provide an example of civic engagement for other citizens and youth to strive towards.   


CAMO activities are a requirement for All State submissions.  Online reporting to Department for CAMO activities will fall under the following program categories;  Safety, Community Activities, Citizen Education, Scouting, and Youth Activities.  Please familiarize yourself with those specific programs via the below program manuals.
