PRINCETON, Maine (WABI) The site of a former camp in Washington County has been purchased by the Maine 4-H Foundation.

The Greenland Point Center is located in Princeton.

The 64-acre facility on Long Lake is expected to open next spring as a youth camp that will focus on outdoor education, ecology, and conservation.

Donors helped raise the initial $350,000 for the purchase, and 4-H is working to raise an additional matching amount to make upgrades to the camp.
