BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF CAMP LITTLE NOTCH INC
ORGANIZER: FRIENDS OF CAMP LITTLE NOTCH INC
EVENT DATE: Jan 09, 2015
For those of you who know me well, Camp Little Notch is one of my favoritest places on earth! It's where I went every summer for camp as a young girl, where I camped with my family every Memorial day and Labor day, and where I got my first "job" as a CIT and later a counselor. I love this place with all my heart.
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!
