Relevance & Success: Selling Surplus Boy Scout Camps


Here we see rubber (heh) hitting the road. Boy Scout camps are closing all over the country. Why? Because they are unused.

Why are they unused? Because Boy Scouting sucks dick.

Yeah, I just wrote that.

Marxist-Leninists and their dupes have succeed in ruining the Boy Scouts over many years. Each watering down of the program, each idiotic attempt at “relevance” made the program less and less palatable to fathers, mothers, and the boys themselves.

Long gone citizenship and character.

Welcome sex — sex ! — in the age of “#MeToo”.

A baseball bat is the answer but the country’s not there. Yet.

Committee to discuss sale of Boy Scouts camp

Magistrates Dickie Carter, Thomas Bouldin and Barry Joe Wright, members of an existing needs and building committee for the county, has been tasked by Judge-Executive Logan Chick to direct their attention to representing the county in talks with the Lincoln Heritage Council, owners of Badgett Reservation, better known as Wildcat Boy Scout Camp.

The council decided to put the 700 plus acre camp up for sale earlier this year, which drew the attention of the fiscal court, some magistrates in favor of putting an offer in on the property.

Chick has been vocal about his skepticism to the county buying the camp located in North Logan citing future financial stains that could befall the county due to a failing state retirement system.

In May, two representatives from the council attended a court meeting where most of the discussion occurred behind closed doors in executive session due to possible land acquisition. Magistrates asked the Lincoln Heritage Council to come and speak with them about the sale and inquire about what they would be asking for it.

Although no price was given, the council did offer a long time period for the court to investigate the possibility of making an offer and come up with a plan of action if the votes were there to do so.

Magistrates Orange, Carter, and Bouldin are steadfast in their belief the camp could be an asset to Logan County and surrounding areas. Bouldin believes the camp could harness those who may want to move to Logan County and increase the tax base, while Carter says the property would be beneficial for outdoor activities. Orange thinks it may be a win, win for the county.

Magistrates Wright, Drexel Johnson, and Jack Crossley aren’t so sure believing it could be a drain on the county’s pocket for upgrading and upkeep.

“The Boy Scouts are giving us plenty of time to deal with this and time to discuss it. They said they didn’t want it going on for years because they do want to sell it,” said Chick.

In February of 2017 word the camp may be going up for sale had the court offering $1.1 million to the council. However, less than one month later the court backed up and rescinded the decision due to community concern over lack of planning.

The property the Boy Scouts own was acquired by the Audubon Council in 1968, subsequently the Shawnee Trails Council, and then by the Lincoln Heritage Council in 2012.
