DEM, PARTNERS PURCHASE 81-ACRE PARCEL ABUTTING CARR POND IN NORTH KINGSTOWN FROM GIRL SCOUTS OF RHODE ISLAND, INC.
The Department of Environmental Management, with funding assistance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Wildlife Restoration Program and The Nature Conservancy, has purchased an 81-acre tract of land on Carr Pond in North Kingstown from the Girls Scouts of Rhode Island, Inc. This property has been known as Camp Nokewa, where the Girl Scouts ran a day camp until 2006. Girls now attend a day camp program at nearby Camp Hoffman.

“This was the result of a study that we undertook for the past couple of years to look at our properties and our needs and decide which ones we wanted to keep and which ones we could afford to part with,” she said. “We’re just not using [Camp Nokewa] that much. It just doesn’t suit our needs right now and we use Camp Hoffman in West Kingston, which is our crown jewel, much more often.”
