After further intensive and exhaustive study conducted by our
volunteer board of directors a data-driven decision has been made to close
Indian Creek Camp in Chatham, La and Pine Wood Camp in Sterlington, La and to
actively pursue the sale of both camps. The
camps will close May 1, 2013.
It is the Board’s role to ensure that GSLPG offers the
Premier Scouting Experience, not only for today’s scouts but for generations to
come- and make the most prudent decisions for the future of the council. Girls
today tell us they would like more modern facilities, and we can only imagine
that girls 20 years from now will want and expect state of the art camping
opportunities as well. As a result, the Board vote and decision is to focus its
efforts on developing two camps, one camp in the south and one camp in the
north. This decision will allow the resources at hand to be utilized in the
most efficient way, enabling us to invest in our future and provide superior
outdoor fun and educational leadership opportunities to reach even more girls
and meet their needs not only today but in years to come.
