Court Says Idaho Boy Scouts Can Trade Land

James Steidl, ThinkStock

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling that found a Boy Scout group has the authority to sell or trade its camp on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The case was brought by opponents of an Arizona developer’s offer to trade the 420-acre Camp Easton for 270 acres elsewhere on the lake along with a $2.5 million endowment. Talks about the proposed swap ended, but a group called Camp Easton Forever sought a final ruling on whether the Inland Northwest Council of the Boy Scouts of America had the right to trade the land.

Opponents argued the land was donated to the Scouts in 1929 with the condition that it would always be used as a Scout camp. The council’s attorneys argued the deed contained no such restrictions and a District Court judge agreed.
