Girl Scouts Lobby for Maryland Bond Bill
On Saturday, March 13, Teen Girl Scouts from Troop 2288 in Silver Spring, Maryland visited the Maryland State Legislature to advocate for $350,000 in state bond funds to expand and construct two lodges at GSCNC Camp Brighton Woods. Girl Scouts testified before the Senate and House Budget Committees headed by Senator Rona Kramer and Delegate Anne Kaiser respectively. Afterwards, the Girl Scouts shared the traditional camp song "Make New Friends" with officials.
Montgomery County, Maryland has already included $100,000 in the county's budget to support the expansion project. Montgomery County Executive Isaiah Leggett said of the funding, "I believe this [project] is consistent with my goals to maintain the highest possible community service."
One of our most popular camps, GSCNC turns away 1 in 3 troops who register to stay at Camp Brighton Woods due to the location capacity. Decisions regarding the FY11 budget and the proposal will be determined in early April.
