Save Camp Oklawaha: Major Gifts for the Future of Scouting
The Boy Scouts of America has reached a settlement with abuse survivors so that victims can be fairly compensated. A portion of this settlement is expected to come from local councils in the form of cash or property. To be a part of the settlement and to receive the benefit of protection from any potential litigation relating to allegations of past abuse, the Gulf Stream Council must contribute $1.1 million in either cash or property. To enable our Council to participate in the settlement, the Gulf Stream Council Board, made the difficult decision to pledge one of its locally owned properties, Camp Oklawaha.
In our effort to save Camp Oklawaha for the continued use of our Scouts, the GSC Board is attempting to raise the $1.1 million in cash in lieu of contributing Camp Oklawaha. The objective is to continue providing multiple local camping options at one of our beloved camps for all of our Scouting families. This $1.1 million dollar campaign is a one-time, small-window and separate campaign from any other fundraising effort in Gulf Stream Council.
