Virtual Tour of New Fairfield Summer Camp for Sale on Candlewood Lake

Camp Candlewood was a Girl Scout camp for many years in New Fairfield, CT. The camp sits on the shores of Candlewood Lake, the largest lake in the Nutmeg State. The Girl Scouts of Connecticut decided to sell the property along with Camp Katoya in Milford and use money from the sale to improve other Girl Scout facilities. 

Listen, there are camps you can go to where you are not "roughing it" and I love those. I go to Club Getaway at least once a summer. The cabins are climate controlled, there are fun activities and great food, that's not "glamping" to me.

At Getaway, nature and outdoor activities are the main act, that's the featured artist and sprinkled all around that are killer parties and great food. I also love hardcore camping where you are in a tent or lean-to.

When I say "glamping", I mean the kind of place with seaweed and robes. I mean the kind of place where nature is a view from a room most people will never be in.

People build these places on land that needs to be seen and touched but it never gets used or interacted with. It's just a screensaver on the way to something else.

Hopefully this property ends up in the hands of someone who loves the outdoors, even better, it ends up home to a large group of people who love nature and will get to enjoy it.

You can take a video tour of Camp Candlewood Below. 

P.S. Club Getaway should totally buy this. I only have to travel about 30 minutes to get to Kent to enjoy that property but if they had one in New Fairfield, now I'm five minutes away. 

P.S. #2  As long as it doesn't end up being home to a local cult, really the whole community wins.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
