Outdoor Programming Master Plan – Board Approval
As you know, GSEP is focused on investing in the future of girls by building exceptional outdoor programming at our camp properties. The Property Committee, with the assistance of Domokur Architects, devoted over twelve months of study to the development of the Master Plan to achieve this goal.
Master Plans were developed for Camp Mosey Wood, Camp Laughing Waters, Camp Wood Haven and Shelly Ridge. The Board unanimously approved the Master Plan Vision and commitment to outdoor programming as presented on September 27, 2012.
With the Boards approval of the Master Plan Vision, the board reaffirms its earlier decision that Camp Hidden Falls, Camp Tweedale, and Camp Tohikanee shall be divested from camp use. They shall be divested pursuant to the following schedule:
1. Divest from camp use at Camp Hidden Falls on September 30, 2012
2. Close Camp Tweedale’s Resident Camp at the end of the 2013 camping season (August 31, 2013)
3. Divest from camp use both Camp Tohikanee and Camp Tweedale no later than September 30, 2015
