Jensen Camp Foundation meets fundraising goal, buys camp

Jensen Camp Foundation board members announced that they met their fundraising goal and purchased Jensen Woods Camp.

Board President Gretchen Forsythe said the board closed on the camp Monday morning after meeting their fundraising goal of $500,000 last week. 

The camp closed in 2015 after being open for more than 50 years. 

The foundation launched the campaign earlier this year to purchase and reopen the camp in Brown County, Illinois. 

They also held fundraisers to help raise the funds necessary to buy the camp.

Forsythe said the camp will be reopened to the public on September 16 with an open house.
