Due to low use, our Girl Scout cabin fell into disrepair. When we found out, we jumped at the chance to see if we could shed light on this beautiful, pristine land and bring awareness to the history of old Claremont. There were several parts to this project. We talked to the newspapers so the community could learn about La Casita cabin, and we partnered with groups to help improve the cabin. A Boy Scout received his Eagle Project by building us an Archery Range. The Girls Scouts fronted the money for a high ropes course. We asked a friend to make a drone video so we could show the property easily to friends online. Pomona College brought a team of outdoor students to train the girls on the ropes, making the cabin very desirable for overnights and camps! We cleaned up the cabin, and rented it for troop meetings. We started a recycling program, so girls could recycle their water bottles. A brochure was made so we could ask others to rent the property. Claremont Rotary Club and Kiwanis Club donated money, and community families donated too (total 16K so far). La Casita is now used almost every weekend, and Scouts from all over come to hike and learn about the land, animals and plants there. It's been a wonderful project and we are thrilled with the outcome!
