< Does anyone on the list know of a council that has sold or
'dis-established' it's summer camp in the last few years that is still
a Council or NOT in the process of merging? >
The Blue Water Council, headquartered in Port Huron, Michigan has not
run a summer Boy Scout camp program since the mid 80's and we still
are a council and are not in the process of merging. Our council camp
is rather small (200 acres) and is used for weekend camping by our
troops, as well as troops from surrounding councils. It is also used
for one week of day camp by the Cub Scouts.
As to the upkeep of Silver Trails, we have a group of retirees who
meet there every Wednesday to do much of the maintainance and building
around the camp.
