Help Save Camp Chenoa!

Help Save Camp Chenoa

Chenoa in Antrim, NH, is a well-loved Girl Scout summer camp that sits next to beautiful Greg Lake. We from Chenoa are looking for campers, counselors, troop leaders, and all other people that are willing to help. We need everyone to come together to save the only residential Girl Scout camp in NH. We girls need camp, we need Chenoa! Without it many girls will not have the opportunity to be themselves and to make lifelong friends. We won’t get to learn the new and unique leadership skills that Chenoa, like all our camp, teaches us. (GSUSA) Girl Scout of the USA are you listening? Girls love to go camping!

On September 7, 2013, the council of the Green and White Mountains put Camp Chenoa up for sale. Many protested. For the girls the news felt like a bullet to the heart, but a lot of people from GSGWM where unmoved. A month later, October 19, a closing Ceremony was held at the camp. It is tradition to make a wish on a stick and put it in the fire to release the wish. The ash of the fire is then collected. When the ash cooled some even used it to write “Chenoa I wish 4 you”, it was a sad day for all.

Despite the Ceremony and all the council has done the camp can still be saved. The fact is that the camp has not been sold, it is still there. We need to up the pressure on GSUSA to stop taking away what we love and need. If you would like to know more about the cause or would like to help join our group on Facebook “I Stand for Camp Chenoa” , or you can email us
