  • Pardon Our Progress


    Summer may be over, but big things are happening at Camp Bon Temps and Camp Wawbansee. 

    Camp Bon Temps is still drying up from the August flooding. Although the camp did not receive initial damage from the August flooding, the rain that fell in the days after the flood caused water to enter four cabins and the back bath house. We are still in the process of contacting FEMA and working to clean up and assess further cost of the damages. The good news is we signed a contract for the leveling of the Lodge and as soon as the camp is dried up, we will begin that project!

    At Camp Wawbansee, we purchased a new stove for the kitchen in June! Currently, all 24 cabins and the troop house are undergoing repairs, and a new floating canoe dock is being installed! 

    We thank you for your continued support and patience as we deal with construction. We are working hard to create a great experience for everyone and know it will pay off. If you have reservations at either camp in the upcoming months, GSLPG will be in contact with you to further discuss construction.
