GSOFCT Dedicates Judy Frey Troop Program Building at Camp Aspetuck


October 4, 2010

Thanks to many generous donors and devoted volunteers, Girl Scouts of Connecticut was able to officially dedicate the newly completed Judy Frey Troop Program Building at Camp Aspetuck on Sunday, October 3, 2010.

The day's events included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication of the building, followed by a reception. Girl Scouts of Connecticut's Board President, Teresa Younger presided over the ceremony and a local Girl Scout Cadette spoke of her experiences at Camp Aspetuck. Judy Frey gave a touching speech about her time as a Girl Scout highlighting the special leadership experiences girls share at camp and the important role adults play in the Girl Scout Program. She personally thanked the many donors to the "A Place to Grow" campaign that helped to fund the new building along with improvements made at other Girl Scouts of Connecticut's camps. Attending the event were long-time Girl Scout friends and supporters, Doon Foster, Priscilla and John Woyke, Sally Berry, Susanne Kuligowski and more than 100 other donors and guests who helped to make the new building possible.

The Judy Frey Troop Program Building is a 2,153 square foot winterized building featuring a kitchen, gas fireplace, restroom, spacious program area and overnight accommodations for 42 guests. 

In addition to the new building, Girl Scouts of Connecticut also opened a nature trail named for former Girl Scout and Troop Leader, Nancy Waltz Peach. The trail was created thanks to funds from Ann Sheffer, a fellow troop member of Nancy's. In dedicating the new trail on Sunday, Judy Frey described Nancy Waltz Peach as a "camper extraordinaire" who made "great contributions to Girl Scouting." Nancy Waltz Peach passed away a year ago, but as Judy Frey mentioned, "her spirit remains with campers and hikers everywhere."
 
This past summer more than 600 Girl Scouts attended Camp Aspetuck and got a sneak peak of the new nature trail and the Judy Frey Program Building. During summer camp the building will be used as a camp office, store, and nurse office.  When summer camp is not in session, it will be used for after school workshops, overnight programs, badge workshops, volunteer trainings, and other year-round Girl Scout meetings and programs.
