Girl Scout camp sold

Camp Singing Hills, the Girl Scout camping facility on the Lauderdale Lakes, was sold to a trust and investment group last month.

The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin announced plans to sell the facility nearly five years ago, however a group filed a lawsuit to block the sale.

At the time, officials pointed to declining numbers of campers and an estimated $2 million in renovations they said would have been required to bring the facilities up to par.

Circuit court and appeals court judges ruled in the Girl Scouts' favor.

Singing Hills opened in 1953 and hosted scouts from Racine County. It sold for $7.25 million.
