Mary Ann Beebe Center


Mary Ann Beebe Center is 295 acres located between Harvard and Woodstock. Pockets of water spread out across the property, providing habitats for various wildlife. Water fowl love the area! From whooping cranes to wood ducks, the camp has many resident feathered friends. The woodlands are populated with burr, white, and red oaks, great open grasslands, and a high-quality managed wetland of about 25 acres.

Troop camping is an essential part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Spending time outdoors at camp lets Girl Scouts try different things, strengthen new skills, build confidence, and ignite their interest in environmental stewardship. Whether earning badges, working on a Journey, or just having fun, Girl Scout troops are in for a fun time when they go to one of our camps!

If your troop is ready to go camping, or you need more information about all of our camp properties then check out our GSNI Troop Camp Guide!
