Who are we? …..
Civilian Conservation Corps Legacy

In 2007, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Legacy was established through a merger between the Camp Roosevelt CCC Legacy Foundation and the National Association of CCC Alumni (NACCCA).  The purpose of CCC Legacy is to continue the promotion of the CCC in America and pass the legacy of the CCC to following generations.  


Our main organizational goals are:

  • Building a strong organization for the future
  • Sustainability
  • Outreach
  • Education
  • Interpretation

Although this list looks simple, it encompasses many important elements that will sustain CCC heritage for many years in the future.  For anyone who has delved into the elements of preserving CCC heritage, they become acutely aware of the great need for action.  As an organization who mission is to make sure the CCC is not forgotten, it is demonstrated that there is a great interest in learning more about conservation heritage and how it affects us today.


CCC alumni have made a remarkable contribution.  Now it is time for following generations to step forward to help secure their hard work.
