As part of our long-range property planning process that began in 2012, GSNI identified revitalizing our camp properties as a top priority in the coming years. We want to make sure our facilities, equipment, buildings, and ecosystems are in the best condition we can provide for Girl Scouts using our camps now and in the future.
