The Red-Tail Conservancy needs to raise $75,000.00 to purchase Camp Munsee from the Girl Scouts. A California couple has donated $75,000, but more is needed to save 47 acre Camp Munsee, located in Indiana, from development according to the story, “Land trust seeks donations to save Camp Munsee“, in TheStarPress.com.
Josie and Geoff Fox of San Jose, Calif., recently donated $75,000 to the Red-tail Conservancy to help buy the former Girl Scout camp. “Hiking in Camp Munsee last month brought back memories of my Girl Scout experiences as student at Burris (Laboratory School),” Josie Fox said in the article. “Among the skills the scout leaders taught us was the importance of land conservation.”
“If people want to save this natural jewel, they need to donate to Red-tail Conservancy’s Camp Munsee Fund as soon as possible,” said Barry Banks, director of the land trust, in the article. “The Girl Scouts will give us time, but I don’t know how much time.”
Camp Munsee was founded in 1936 and is one of four camps being sold by the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. The organization says it can’t afford renovations needed to comply with safety codes.
