$1 Million grant from the David and Lucille Packard Foundation


Recently, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation awarded a $1,000,000 grant to support the new North Commons Lodge and Tree House Village at Camp Butano Creek! The new structures mean that more girls will be able to go camping year-round at Butano. When girls learn how to build a fire, sleep under the stars, work in teams at camp, and hike farther than they ever thought possible, they are having fun, and they are learning to care about others and the environment, are developing a “can do” attitude, and, ultimately, are becoming girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. A huge thank you to the Foundation for investing in our girls.  And on June 20, we will hold the Dedication Celebration for the new North Commons Lodge and Tree House Village.
