Thousand-acre former Girl Scout camp to be added to Delaware Water Gap NRA

DINGMANS, Pa. -- The National Park Service has taken ownership of a 1,054-acre former Girl Scout camp, which will become part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and fill in much of the gap between the national park's lands and Pennsylvania-owned game lands.


The money for the purchase came from several grants by conservation groups and from the Middle Delaware Mitigation Fund, established in 2012 as part of a settlement that allowed the construction of the Susquehanna-Roseland electric transmission line along an existing power line right-of-way.
