Girl Scouts of Louisiana - Pines to the Gulf



From the Board

Board Makes Decision on Properties - Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Property Decision Statement

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.
