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.

As we learned in summer 2021, camp can be run during a pandemic. We are excited for the woods to come alive again during Summer 2022 with laughter, fun, adventure, and friendship! Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, 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. As our regulations are updated, GSEMA will update all procedures and communicate them with families. 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, 2022, based on the schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.

About the Director

Brenna “Pitch” Woods is so excited for the upcoming camp season. This will be Pitch’s first year as Director of Maude Eaton, but 20th year of involvement with GSEMA. Previously they have been a Unit Counselor, Unit Leader, Leadership Director and Assistant Camp Director at Camp Wabasso. Additionally, they worked at WIP resident camp as the Leadership Director and Co-Camp Director. They believe camp is a place for people of all ages to find their voice and learn from those around them! Outside of camp, Pitch works as a first-grade teacher. They received their Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Bridgewater State University. At camp, Pitch loves singing, crafting, archery, and dessert cookouts. Pitch is so excited to be returning to GSEMA in this new role and cannot wait to meet all of the campers and their families—both returning and newcomers!
