Camp Cedar Hill Celebrates 90th anniversary

Did you know that Cedar Hill in Waltham, Mass. was purchased by the Warren family in the 1850s, where they raised their children and spent their summers? Cornelia Warren, inherited the land and dedicated her life to education and social service organizations.

Cornelia was very generous and instructed her trustees to partition the Cedar Hill estate and give the land to charitable institutions. In 1923, trustees of Cornelia Warren’s estate donated 75 acres of the Cedar Hill property to Girl Scouts.
Today, Camp Cedar Hill is one of the largest day camps run by Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, where more than 800 girls from the surrounding area spend their summers swimming, hiking and exploring nature.
