Girl Scout local campsites are safe from divestment until next year

Jun 18, 2013 -- 5:49pm

After months of writing letters and emails or concern, local Girl Scouts have been given an opportunity to save area campsites.  Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland's board of directors reviewed 10 properties and formed a committee to suggest which properties should be renovated and which should be divested. PR Manager for Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland Lori Enyart tells KZIM KSIM that no decisons will be made until November of next year.  Six camps, including Camp Latonka near Wappapello Lake in Wayne County and Sacajawea East near Cape Girardeau, were placed on the list of properties for divestment.  When the board met Friday to make a decision, it instead voted unanimously to allow local communities additional time to work with the council to "develop sustainable long-term viable plans" for supporting the properties.
