GILFORD — Ian McNeil, a Life Scout in By Scout Troop 243, is working on Eagle Scout project which will see as many as three handicap amps installed at Camp Fatima in Gillmanton Iron Works.
McNeil, who has attended the camp for seven years, says that one area in the Junior Division of the camp is only 50 percent handicapped accessible and that each ramp which is built will allow at least seven more handicapped campers to attend each camp session.
He says that each ramp will cost about $1,200 for supplies and that he is looking to raise $3,6000 for his Eagle Scout project.
Among those organizations contributing to support the project are the Knights of Columbus, Laconia Council 428.
