Preserve Your Camp
Do you want to see your Boy Scout, Girl Scout, YMCA, church or other camp or hunt club land preserved forever? Doing nothing to protect it may doom the land to development. If the land is sold, future owners may sell it for development.

Goal of Big Camps: Permanently preserve camps across America for future generations.

NOTE: LandChoices is working to protect land in the hands of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and other groups but is in no way supporting the BSA, etc.

How Can Camps be Protected?
Protect yours with a permanent land preservation agreement (conservation easement).

Why Save Camps?
Many Camps are in Trouble
Camps across our nation are threatened with being sold for development.

Children Need Camps
The average American child spends 44.5 hours per week, more than 6 hours a day, plugged into electronic media, according to a study by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

In author Richard Louv's best selling book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, studies show connecting children with nature leads to lower levels of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), anxiety and depression. Nature increases critical curiosity and creativity skills leading to more children taking science and math classes and becoming more successful adults.

Preserving Water Quality, Natural Areas and Wildlife
Protecting camps protects water quality in lakes, rivers and streams and preserves land for wildlife and future generations.
