Supporters of Camp Archbald Looking to Keep the Camp Alive

News

BROOKLYN TWP., SUSQUEHANNA COUNTY– If you were ever a Girl Scout in NEPA, there’s a good chance you spent some time at Camp Archbald.

The camp is nearly 100 years old, and has been a host to Girl Scouts for decades. However, the Girl Scout organization is now looking to shut Camp Archbald down… but local campers aren’t willing to let it go so easily! 

Sunday, Girl Scouts past and present came together at the camp to “heart bomb” it. They made cutout posters in the shape of hearts, and took pictures with them all over the property. Those photos demonstrated the power of memories created at camp archbald over the years

“For us, Camp Archbald represents our daughter’s connection to 100 years of strong and successful women,” Joan Peterson, a Girl Scout Leader, told Eyewitness News.

The group is hoping that through this demonstration, the public will understand just how many memories will be lost on future generations by letting Camp Archbald go. 

The photos from the gathering will be posted on the Supporters of Camp Archbald Facebook page.
