The Midnight Sun Council, Boy Scouts of America, announces the conveyance of 230+ acres from the estate of Jim Moody, that are adjacent to Lost Lake Scout Camp about an hour south of Fairbanks.
(The yellow green area in the picture is the original Lost Lake Scout Camp. The reddish area shows the newest addition through the generous donation of the Jim Moody Estate.)
We thank the Jim Moody Estate for its generous donation of the land and cabins, that will allow for broader programs for our Scouts, their families, and community organizations that utilize the camp for their programs.
Jim Moody, a lover of nature and the environment, wished that his land be used for the enjoyment of nature, outdoor activities, and conservation. Plans for this new section of Lost Lake Scout Camp, include hiking trails, outpost camping, and possibly an outdoor education center utilizing an existing cabin. To best meet the needs of our Scouts and the wishes of Jim Moody, our Properties & Camping Committee will be working with the Interior Alaska Land Trust to determine our best options going forward.
