"A Magical Place...Where the Spirit Lives"
The Memorial Scout Camp at Spectacle Pond is located in Osborn, Maine. It was purchased in 2012 from Joe Beggs, the grandfather of Adam Beggs. The property is a 2 acre lot with 255 feet of shoreline. Groups using the property can spend the night on provided bunks in Adam's Cabin, or provide their own tents and stay in the Goodwin's Campsite. The video below gives an overview of the camp's facilities.

"Great facility and location. It is clear that the Scouting spirit is alive and well here."

"[W]e found it an ideal facility. We did not have to worry about hauling canoes or equipment; all we needed was food, water, and tentage."

"The Memorial Scout Camp is a beautiful retreat for all to experience. To be able to go to a place where strangers are welcome, and treated like family, is far and few between. The spirit of Joe and Adam Beggs, and Craig Goodwin can be felt throughout the camp. Sitting on the dock, watching the sun rise, was very peaceful and serene"
