Scout Camp Faces Uncertain Future

October 10, 2011 State of Wyoming, Sublette County No Comments
Union Wireless

A Boy Scout camp near Pinedale which has been the site of numerous summer camp experiences for local scouts over the years is faced with costly renovations in order to continue its existence.  Camp New Fork, belonging to the Trapper Trails Council in southern Wyoming and Northern Utah sought a permit to drill a new water well, but during the permitting inspection, the state found numerous problems with the entire water system.  Consequently, the camp faces nearly $300-thousand in repair work over the next year.  On Friday, September 30th, Wyoming –based Union Wireless presented the Boy Scout council with a check for $10-thousand to help with the project.  That, says Council Development Director Carl Robbins, is a great kick-start to accomplish the needed repairs.  Robbins says many from the local communities are helping the best they can, but since the communities are small, those resources are limited.  He says he hopes the generous donation from Union Wireless will inspire other companies to participate as well.  Currently, the council has nearly $100-thousand in cash and in-kind donations, but still has some $200-thousand to raise. Robbins says if the repairs are not in place by 2013, the camp will not be able to open.
