The Mt. Baker Council of the Boy Scouts of America will meet this morning to determine the fate of the nearly 90 year-old camp.
Members of the Friends of Black Mountain — a community group that is rallying to keep the camp open this coming summer—were told they must raise $60,000 and sign up 300 scouts before the first of this year for the council to save the popular site.
The camp has seen its attendance dwindle over recent years.
Friends of Black Mountain President Brent Richards says he believes the camp has been a victim of poor marketing in the past.
He also says his group raised $64,000 and signed up about 250 kids before the deadline and is hopeful the council will see the future potential of the camp.
