Girl Scouts of the Green & White Mountains – Camp Farnsworth
Banwell was hired to do a comprehensive review of all of the properties the Girl Scouts own in NH and VT (a total of 14 properties). The first project to stem from this master plan is Camp Farnsworth in Thetford, VT. Currently in design, the new Dining Hall will be the new heart of their Camp Farnsworth facility in central Vermont. The center seats 250 girls along with camp staff and provides exterior covered seating for an additional 200 overlooking the campus center and lake. The center offers flexible space for dining, conferences and Girl Scout jamborees.
Included in the Master Plan for Camp Farnsworth is a new welcome center and maintenance facility. Housing the camp registration office, the welcome center includes a camp store. Included in the welcome center upgrades are renovations to their equestrian center. The Tentalos, a tent like cabin, has recently completed construction. Banwell has designed custom camp facilities for the Girl Scouts which provide the security of solid walls and a roof while keeping with the Girl Scouts
traditions and camping experience of sleeping in the open outdoors. The cabins sleep 6 girls, are adaptable to the landscape and can be combined to sleep
