The Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland has some land for sale.

It’s 300 acres of pasture in Butler County, near Leon.

The organization has owned more than 500 acres of Flint Hills land for more than half a century, according to Muriel Berry, director of marketing and communications for the regional Girl Scouts office.

Those 500 acres include Girl Scouts Camp Four Winds, which is about 250 acres of land. An additional 300 acres of pasture is not associated with the camp and is no longer needed by the Scouts.

“We currently lease the land to a rancher for grazing,” Berry said. “It has never been used for Girl Scout programming.”

The 300 acres will be auctioned at 6 p.m. April 7 at the El Dorado Civic Center, 201 E. Central, El Dorado.

The Girl Scouts will still maintain 250 acres of property in the area, and that includes the familiar buildings and lakefront property that the Girl Scouts have traditionally associated with the camp.

Sundgren Realty is handling the auction.

Future improvements are planned on the Girl Scouts Camp Four Winds property, Berry said.
