The Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey (GSHNJ) is pleased to share that we have finalized the sale of Camp Eagle Island, located in Upper Saranac Lake, New York. The camp was owned and operated by Girl Scouts from 1938-2008, during which time, played an important role in our girls’ scouting experience. The camp was “rested” in 2008 due to financial constraints and an abundance of work that needed to be done to the facility to ensure it was safe for all girls who camped there. The Friends of Eagle Island subsequently formed and are the purchasers of the island from the council. “While we have made the decision to sell Camp Eagle Island, the Board remains committed to ensuring that the outdoors, and camping, remain a hallmark of the Girl Scout experience,” said Nancy Faulks, President of the GSHNJ Board of Directors. “The proceeds of this sale will solely be earmarked to further develop the Girl Scouts outdoor experience and support our three remaining camps, Camp DeWitt, Lou Henry Hoover, and The OVAL. While it is never easy to close a camp, we are very happy to see that the Friends of Eagle Island, and the women who grew up in Girl Scouts are the proud new owners of the camp.”

Our sister scout, and alumnae recently traveled to Osaka, Japan to compete in the Sumo World Championship—and took 6th place!
Helen Delpopolo, a resident of Westfield, New Jersey, came out of a 10-year retirement as a tribute to her former sensei and mentor, who unfortunately passed away in October 2014.
Helen placing 6th in the world isn't her only accomplishment in the sport. At age 12, she was named the youngest athlete to win a national title in sumo wrestling and she currently holds the 2015 Middleweight Sumo National Championship for the United States. She also competes in Judo and was a 14X Junior National Judo Champ!
Helen is working towards becoming the first female sumo world champion from the United States—and she won't stop competing until she gets there.
We're rooting for you, Helen!
