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.

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