Camp Pouch Update

by @ 12:00 pm on January 12, 2010. Filed under Camp Pouch, Scouting in the News

Planning continue on ways to save Camp Pouch.  A recent article in the Staten Island Advance outlines  some of the discussions which are underweigh.

Discussions to save Pouch Camp in the Greenbelt are under way and involve surprising potential saviors: A luxury home builder and the Richmond County Country Club; and possibly the New York Container Terminal.

In an attempt to prevent the Greater New York Councils of Boy Scouts from selling off the 120-acre camp to a private developer, the two separate fund-raising possibilities that are emerging would allow other commercial or residential development to take place.

“There has been no decision made on this proposal or any other proposal. We were asked to look at it and we are looking it,” Cusick noted. “The goal here is, ultimately, to save Pouch Camp and to keep it as pristine open space…. We have to listen and entertain any proposal that comes across our desk.”

See the article for more details.
