Over a year ago, the Northwest WI Girl Scout Council announced the sale of Camp Nawakwa in NE Chippewa County. The Ice Age Trail travels through the camp on the south side of Picnic Lake. A non-profit group was formed on November 14, 2022, called Our Nawakwa, with the goal of purchasing Camp Nawakwa and continuing its purpose as a place for youth to be engaged with the out-of-doors.  They have a Board of Directors and working committees. They have engaged community youth partners, and designed a business plan to become financially sustainable. Their offer to purchase of the camp has been accepted, and they are proceeding with a fund-raising campaign. They will take ownership in early January. We have been partnering with the Girl Scouts at Camp Nawakwa, and will continue to do so with Our Nawakwa.

You can find Our Nawakwa on Facebook. Their website is https://ournawakwa.org/. You can email them at OurNawakwa@gmail.com.
