In an article published August 3rd the Redwood Empire Council of the Boy Scouts of America said that although finances have improved this year and they are no long operating at a deficit, camp Masonite-Navarro remains on the market.
“Faced with severe budget problems, the council in March put Camp Masonite-Navarro on the market at a list price of $2 million. The camp, 70 miles northwest of Santa Rosa, has been used by generations of Boy Scouts and other groups from across the North Coast to learn outdoor skills.
The camp was founded in 1955 on redwood-studded land owned by Masonite Corp. The company donated the property to the Scouts in 1973 and the Masonite name was added to the title.”
