As of August 2022, the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay (GSCB) has two operation facilities and four camp properties that have contributed to rising operational costs and ongoing budget deficits in addition to deferred maintenance over the past decade. To ensure long-term financial sustainability and operational viability, and as part of a Long Range Property Plan, on August 30th, 2022, GSCB Board of Directors and leadership staff announced the difficult decision to divest four of those properties:
Sales proceeds will be partially invested in the two remaining camp properties: Camp Country Center and Camp Todd covering renovations, enhancements, introduction of high adventure programmatic activities, and more. Additional proceeds will be utilized to provide long-term financial sustainability for the council.
Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay has developed the below Long Range Property Plan to set us on the right path towards the future while maintaining the financial health of our organization.
