Girl Scouts Have Woes, Too

Girl Scout Zoe Kirtz, of Cedar City, Utah, paddles around Lake Brimhall in a canoe during summer camp at the Girl Scouts of Utah's Camp Cloud Rim above Park City, Utah. Just a year after its centennial celebrations in 2012, the Girl Scouts of the USA's interconnected problems include declining membership and revenues, a dearth of volunteers, rifts between leadership and grass-roots members, a pension plan with a $347 million deficit, and an uproar over efforts by many local councils to sell venerable summer camps. As of June 2013, Camp Cloud Rim is still owned by the Girl Scouts. (AP Photo/Deseret Morning News, Jeffrey D. Allred)
