THE STORY:

We are down to the wire for saving this camp, and yet only $87,000 more is needed by the January 9th deadline. I firmly believe that all kids should get to experience camp and should spend lots of time outdoors unplugged, to develop independence, relationships, character, confidence, and connections to the world. This place has helped so many do this, and it can provide hope for so many more kids.

Thirty-four years ago, I first set foot on this property when a friend and I traveled cross country to work there. I did not know the impact it would have on my life and the transformations it would work in the lives of girls from the surrounding area. Wilderness canoeing and backpacking trips and a Project Adventure ropes course were what it was especially known for, but it also offered bike trips, sailing, and many other programs that helped girls learn their strengths and develop into strong, responsible, and caring adults. 

Over the past few years, the Friends of Camp Little Notch group has worked tirelessly to raise funds, perform camp upkeep, and build connections that have enabled the camp to reopen a resident camp program for girls, as well as becoming a place where others can rejuvenate in the wild. My daughter is now experiencing the magic of this place, and I want her to continue to grow here each summer.

Unfortunately, the organization currently needs to raise significant funds for the final purchase of 400 acres of the camp from the Open Space institute. There is a January deadline, and the need is great. Any donation is welcome, of any size.

FRIENDS OF CAMP LITTLE NOTCH INC wrote -

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!
