Wizard Cottage Lot

Future Sea Base on the Susquehanna River at Wizard Ranch?

Vision for the future is sometimes hard to come by.  Here is a test.  The York-Adams Area Council now has title to a cottage and land along the Susquehanna River on River Road in Hellam Township, York County, PA.  The cottage on the site is in bad condition, but the riverfront site is exquisite.  The issue is how to cost-effectively utilize this asset for the benefit of Scouting, and possibly Sea Scouting in particular.  Click on any thumbnail photo below to enlarge it.
