Governor releases $1.25 M for GSH camp improvements

MEDIA RELEASE

Gov. Neil Abercrombie announced the release of $1.25 million in capital improvement grant funds to the Girl Scouts of Hawaii (GSH) for improvement projects at camp facilities on three islands.

Identified by the state Legislature, these funds will finance improvements to wastewater systems at Camp Paumalu on Oahu, Camp Piiholo on Maui and Camp Kilohana on Hawaii Island.

“By maintaining basic facility necessities, we are ensuring that this historically rich and value-based organization can continue to be an active and beneficial contributor to young women in our communities,” Gov. Abercrombie said.

One of 111 Girl Scout councils nationwide, GSH is a nonprofit organization that began in 1917 when a group of girls from Kamehameha Schools were organized into Hawaii’s first Girl Scout troop. GSH has more than 4,800 girl and adult members. Its mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, and who will make the world a better place.
