BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF CAMP LITTLE NOTCH INC
ORGANIZER: FRIENDS OF CAMP LITTLE NOTCH INC
EVENT DATE: Jan 09, 2015
Camp Little Notch has been in my heart for a very long time. I was fortunate enough to go there as a Girl Scout and my troop went there every chance we had. As time went by, I was also able to attend summer camp. I became a "lifer". It was natural for me to want to become a counselor as my goal was to work with children. And, one of the reasons I found my life's work is through this camp. The people I met there helped me to grow into the person I am today. I am very thankful for all of them.
I am extending my hand to you and asking for your help. If it is in your heart to contribute to helping this camp stay in the hands of Friends of Little Notch, it would be very much appreciated. Our goal is to keep this place open as a camp and give children and adults the wilderness experience as well as a place for them to find who they are and a place to be themselves.
Thank you very much for listening to my story.

Camp Little Notch (CLN) is a magical forest located at the base of the Adirondacks in upstate New York. Situated on 2,300 acres of pristine wilderness, including an 80-acre private lake and historic iron ore furnace. CLN provides the perfect setting for outdoor adventure, personal growth, new friendships, and community building.
From 1939 to 2008—the Girl Scouts owned and operated CLN as a summer camp for girls. In 2008, the Girl Scout Council decided to close CLN and sell the property. Upon learning of the impending sale, an energetic group of former campers and staff—who believed CLN could and should reopen—formed Friends of Camp Little Notch (Friends of CLN), the non-profit organization that reopened CLN for summer program in 2012. Friends of CLN has successfully conserved the property through a relationship with the Open Space Institute (OSI) and but needs your support to complete the purchase and keep Little Notch open for generations to come!
