Great Hall at Cedar Hill

Cedar Hill


This 75-acre property in Waltham, MA, hosts summer day camp, troop camping, community activities, programs and volunteer meetings. The site is also home to the Girl Scout Museum at Dennett House, a service center housing our membership staff and a retail shop.

Renovated in 2015, Great Hall is a modern meeting space perfect for corporate retreats and personal celebrations, available for rent when camp is not in session. In 2015, we installed a new high ropes challenge course on the property, with views of Boston.
