IDEA Public Schools buys Camp Lula Sams

October 26, 2016 GMT

The former Girl Scout camp known as Camp Lula Sams has been purchased by IDEA Public Schools.

Now known as Camp RIO at Lula Sams, IDEA had been leasing the area to take students on field trips where they learned canoeing, archery and other skills, plus listened to presentations about reptiles and other animals.

With the purchase, IDEA will also allow other schools to use the camp, which is located on 85 acres of wildlife preserve. The school system plans to expand the facilities at Camp RIO.
