Rally to Save William H. Pouch Scout Camp

Posted on 13 December 2009 by Dan

The Staten Island Advance has an article about a rally to save Camp Pouch Scout Camp.

In an attempt to prevent a beloved piece of Island history from falling into the clutches of private developers, approximately 1,500 Scouts and supporters of William H. Pouch Scout Camp braved the cold yesterday evening to rally against the potential sale of the Sea View site.

Armed with candleholders reading “Scouting without Pouch… Ouch,” the hundreds in attendance filled the lawn in front of Susan Wagner High School prior to the camp’s annual holiday lighting ceremony. They came from all five boroughs, with some even from Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Florida to sign petitions preventing the site from being sold.
