Washington-Carver Camp in Fayette County, heretofore transferred to the public land corporation under the control, administration and supervision of the Division of Culture and History shall continue under the control, administration and supervision of the division.

The Division of Culture and History shall undertake to develop such cultural and multicultural, artistic, humanistic and educational programs at the camp as will serve and benefit the citizens of the state and the many cultures represented therein. In order to ensure the maximum reasonable utilization of that portion of the camp under its jurisdiction, the division shall, during times the camp is not being used for the division's purposes, make the camp available, under such terms as the division deems proper, to any other agency of government or nonprofit group desiring to use the camp. The camp shall retain the name "Camp Washington-Carver" as indicative of its heritage of serving the black citizens of the state. The division is authorized to provide necessary and suitable equipment and other resources for implementing the provisions of this section.

No minerals may be assigned, leased or otherwise encumbered, sold, mined, or removed with respect to the property heretofore transferred or the mineral rights retained without specific authorization by the Legislature.
