Girl Scouts hold camp-in to protest camp closures

MACEDONIA, OH (WOIO) - Girl Scouts in Macedonia are having a camp-in to protest the closing of five of their seven Girl Scout Camps in Northeast Ohio.

The decision to close the camps was made April 16th. If the plan is carried out, there will be just two camps for 40,000 local Girl Scouts in 18 counties.

Girl Scout Board members say closing the camps would save money and offer better technology and leadership skills.
