Save Camp Anokijig

OK, this is a bit off-topic but perhaps a few of our readers can help out. MU graduate Jim McIlvaine is leading an effort to preserve a long-running camp in southeastern Wisconsin.

Camp Anokijig sits just outside of Plymouth in Sheboygan County, and has been a successful Wisconsin institution for decades. In this recent Journal-Sentinel article, McIlvaine presents a strong case for a reasonable solution -- one that would preserve the facility as an independent YMCA camp, but at a cost that falls well short of the $8 million sought by the current owner. Currently, the camp is owned by the Racine Family YMCA, which is accepting bids through the end of September.

Anybody interested in supporting the community's bid to save the camp, please visit the Friends of Camp Anokijig site. Here is the official site for the camp.
