So sorry to hear of your camp burning down! That is jsut terrible!

We did a huge fundraising effort in our council about 2 years ago and got federal grants as well to rebuild are biggest camp (247 acres) as it got greatly damaged in a wind storm 3 years ago. . It was hard work getting all the money together but now the camp is just beautiful! And they were able to build a few more sleeping ares too! I hope your council does that for you guys. . maybe your troop can spearhead the movement for their Bronze, Silver or Gold awards??

Go Team Golden Phoenix!

I really do hope they rebuild it. I am in the newly formed Greater Los Angeles council as well now so its a special interest to me. I used to be in Girl Scouts of Southwest TX council. *waving*

No one can make you feel any particular way, good or bad........ unless you let them.

During Hurricane Ike, a tree fell on our lodge, taking half of it out. This camp is our smallest, most rustic and we have been afriad they would sell it anyway. It took a long time but they rebuilt ours . .. so there is hope for yours.

One day at a time . . .

That is heartbreaking! Very good that no one was hurt. Let's cross our fingers for rebuilding.

The pictures are amazing. Scary, but amazing.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

How sad! I hope that the council will rebuild it for you. I'm not sure that my council would rebuild if that had been in our council.

sooo sad... our beloved lodge at Camp Lakota burned to the ground yesterday. emoticon

thankfully no one was hurt; it happened just a few hours before a group of girls was due to spend the weekend there.
here's a link to the article on it: http://www.mountaindaily.com/content/367/

I really hope that our council does not sit on this and makes plans to rebuild asap.
