Hard decisions are being made to ensure a brighter future for Boy Scouts in northeast Wisconsin. Bay-Lakes Area Council, which covers 21 Wisconsin counties including Door and Kewaunee, first introduced Imagine 2024 in 2013 as a way to develop a new 10-year plan by reviewing its properties and programs. Since then, the council sold its camp in Hancock, Wis. and the northern portion of the JAX Camp located near Sturgeon Bay as it allocates that money towards future projects within the council. Voyageur Senior District Executive Christopher O’Brien says scouts and others are already reaping the benefits.
Over 3,100 scouts are involved in the Voyageur District, including those in three Kewaunee County and ten Door County communities.
