To save nature camps for kids, LandChoices launches SaveCamps.org
Information will help preserve Boy Scout, Girl Scout and outdoor camps for kids
Milford, MITo help preserve Boy Scout, Girl Scout and other outdoor nature camps for kids, LandChoices, a Milford, Michigan based nonprofit, is launching the blog SaveCamps.org (www.SaveCamps.org). The blog is part of LandChoices' Big Camps program to save camps for kids and was established to offer information on how Scout and other outdoor camps can become sustainable and saved from development. LandChoices is a national nonprofit group based in Milford.
"As a youth, I saw my Boy Scout camp, Charles Howell in Brighton, sold to developers," says SaveCamps.org volunteer editor and Commerce, Michigan resident Ken Jacobsen. "I'm hoping as volunteer editor of SaveCamps.org we can educate scout leaders and other camp owners on options to preserve these youth resources from development." Jacobsen earned his Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts of America, in 1983 and is currently Cubmaster for Pack 631 at Country Oaks Elementary. He has a son who is a Webelos Cub Scout and a daughter who is a Daisy Girl Scout.
"Ken and I started SaveCamps.org to help put a halt to the preventable sale of these irreplaceable outdoor camps for kids," says LandChoices' founder Kirt Manecke. "Through SaveCamps.org our objective is to help the people making the ultimate decisions on these camps learn innovative land protection and fundraising methods that create a win-win situation for their programs and the camps."
