A land conservancy group has received a $75,000 donation toward buying a closed Girl Scouts camp in eastern Indiana and has
started working to double that money.
Red-tail Conservancy director Barry Banks says the group hopes to raise the full $150,000 as soon as possible to buy the
47-acre Camp Munsee.
Leaders of the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana decided this spring to sell the camp near the city of Muncie and three
other camp properties that need significant renovations.
Josie Fox of San Jose, Calif., gave the $75,000 donation to the conservancy group, saying she had fond memories of visiting
Camp Munsee as a child growing up nearby.
The Red-tail Conservancy plans to use the property for nature education and as a community meeting place and campgrounds.
