Badgerland Long Range Property Plan

Girl Scouts of Wisconsin – Badgerland Council Board of Directors voted in June 2014 on the Long Range Property Plan. Development of this strategy has been years in the making. A volunteer-led, Long-Range Property Planning Committee was appointed by the Board of Directors in 2009 to review, in depth, at all ten Badgerland properties with an eye for program potential and the cost of bringing properties up to program standards. That committee concluded its work with property-by-property recommendations presented to the Board in April 2013. In the fall of 2013, those proposals were released to the full membership for review and comment. Today’s Badgerland Property Plan is the result of that five-year long review and analysis.

In the meantime, the Task Force will continue to review resident camp usage in preparation for next-step recommendations to the board later this year.
