Come to Camp Maude Eaton for adventure! This property in Andover features an archery range, the Pomps Pond waterfront, a low ropes challenge course, and a high ropes course featuring unique adventure elements (including the Flying Squirrel!). Maude Eaton borders the Shawsheen River and conservation land, and is also home to the Lou Henry Hoover Memorial Sanctuary and Trail—perfect for adventurous explorers.

We know this summer will look different, but we are excited for the woods to come alive again with laughter, fun, and friendship. Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. We will continually update our COVID-19 guidelines and safety procedures to decrease the risk of exposure to COVID-19. We are taking special precautions to keep our campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff. We are monitoring recommendations from the CDC, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, New Hampshire Department of Health, American Camp Association and GSUSA. Camp plans are subject to change based on all of these factors, but our current plan is to operate camp in summer, 2021, based on the schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.
