Through the sale of 20 acres of its land last fall, Bay-Lakes Council hopes it is able to renew its Jax Camp for future scouts and scouters to enjoy. Located just northeast of Sturgeon Bay, the Jax Camp provides a chance for the council’s troops, packs, and crews to escape for a nearly private camping experience without traveling very far. Voyageur District Executive Christopher O’Brien says proceeds from the $85,000 sale will go towards some much-needed updates.
Improvements to the Jax Camp are included in Bay-Lakes Council’s ten year strategic plan known as Imagine 2024. Bay-Lakes Council, including its 15 Door County units, is celebrating National Boy Scout Week through the Scout Sabbath on Saturday.
