I am extremely pleased to learn of the Greater Hudson Valley Council (GHVC) Board’s decision not to sell Camp Bullowa in the Town of Stony Point. This decision by GHVC is a victory for Rockland’s Scouting program and the other organizations which regularly utilize Camp Bullowa. I want to acknowledge the leadership and herculean efforts undertaken to save this property by Stony Point Town Supervisor Jim Monaghan and the Stony Point Town Board. The advocacy of County Legislator Doug Jobson, NYS Senator James Skoufis, NYS Assemblyman Colin Schmitt and the Supervisors of Rockland’s four other towns no doubt played a role in this decision as well.
We look forward to the continuation of the Scouting program at Camp Bullowa which will greatly benefit future generations and will continue to support GHVC’s work within Rockland County.
