WE ARE THE ARIZONA ELKS
Founded in 1910, the Arizona Elks Association mission is the same today as it was then-- to provide service to our communities and country. We have taken on two ``Major Projects`` that help us support that very mission. In 1992, The Arizona Elks Association and Arizona Elks Major Projects took on the Steele Children's Research Center as it's first project to provide funding to. This support has facilitated incredible research and helped their physician-scientists and researchers make new discoveries, teach the next generation of scientists and heal the children of Arizona and beyond. The Elks Pediatric Clinic sees over 65,000 children a year! Our second passion project is the Jack C. Warter Elks Youth camp located 40 miles northeast of Globe, Arizona, on Workman Creek in the Sierra Ancha Mountain Range. This youth camp is open to all youth groups free of cost!
