Hull of the Donnelsville Lions said the development of Camp Headly was a community project as many local businessmen and residents donated generously, while the Lions Club held auctions, rose sales, and other activities to make the camp a reality.  Camp Headly was donated to Bethel Township in 2006 by the Donnelsville Lions Club.
