Camp Barton might be sold to help the Boy Scouts of America pay sexual abuse settlements

Camp Barton, a 130 acre Boy Scout camp, may go up for auction.

A vote was held to decide whether the Boy Scouts of America’s Baden-Powell Council should sell the property assessed to be worth $4.5 million dollars.

The sale would help with paying for sexual abuse settlements.

In total the Boy Scouts of America own over $100 million in camp property in New York State, according to the Ithaca Journal.
