Within 142 acres of dense, mature woods and perched above the banks of the Platte River, Camp Maha is a few miles south of Omaha but secluded enough to immerse yourself in adventure and Mother Nature.
The name “Maha” is an indigenous word meaning “a member of the Siouan tribe,” who resided in the Missouri River Valley in northeastern Nebraska.
Camp Maha features a nature education center, an arts and crafts center, modern shower houses, storm shelters, and multiple options for overnight stays, including rustic Lois Lodge, modern Burr Oak Cabin and Riverview Lodge, and seasonal platform cabins. Relax by the swimming pool, test your skills at the archery range or high and low challenge courses, and get an adrenaline rush on the zip line! Hike the lush trails to visit Girl Scout Island, take in incredible views of the Platte River, then explore the history of Girl Scouts at the TLC Welcome Center, home of the official Spirit of Nebraska Museum.
This camp is accredited by the American Camp Association®, which requires thorough and rigorous compliance for camp operations, staffing qualifications, and safety standards annually. An onsite observation visit is performed by a team of specially-trained camp professionals every five years.
Camp Maha is owned and operated by Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska and is available for rent by Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scout groups. Please see Property Rentals for more information about renting Spirit of Nebraska properties.
