Skver has begun to vacate the former Homowack Lodge as ordered by a state Supreme Court judge. The camp began leaving the site before a 5 p.m. deadline today. Buses and trucks rolled out of the old resort, seemingly ending the month-long standoff between Congregation Bais Trana and state and emergency officials, who have called the resort unsafe and ordered the congregation to leave.
After the camp defied at July 27 state Department of Health order to vacate the site, Judge Burton Ledina ordered it to leave the lodge by 5 p.m. Thursday. Ledina then pushed the deadline back to 5 p.m. today.
