Camp Alice Pittenger
On February 14th, 1940, Mrs. Alice Pittenger donated land for a new Girl Scout camp as a surprise Valentine gift. She felt the picturesque setting on Payette Lake would be a place where girls from all over the state would be able to camp and call their own. 81 years later, Camp Alice Pittneger (CAP) is still going strong, even after a pandemic. To celebrate this special milestone, Horizon Credit Union and Girl Scouts of Silver Sage launched a council-wide storytelling campaign to honor CAP and the thousands of campers she has welcomed.
