Chief Logan Scout Reservation to close

Recommended Posts

Lazarus is located in the heart of the Columbus suburbs, and one of those camps where the area around it has become completely developed.  If they have 60 acres that they really don't use it's likely they could get a very good price for that property, and stabilize the finances for Lazarus for the future.

Our council did this with a very similar piece of one of our camps, and the endowment set up from the proceeds of that sale was a big part of what allowed us to opt out of the Michigan Mess.

I've never been to CLR, but 1100 scouts at summer camp seems like a low number considering how big the council is.  I doubt that a camp used only for weekend camping can bring in enough revenue to cover even its most basic operating costs.  If you don't have enough summer camp revenue to cover the cost of summer camp, plus facilities, you're going to face some very hard choices.
