Please read this page before continuing with your reservation.


Little House of Glencoe was built for a Girl Scout camp back in the 1940’s. Its mission was to allow scout troops to have a safe, comfortable, and convenient place to earn badges, practice camping skills, and participate in overnights. In the 1960’s, the board decided they would open Little House doors to other types of groups while still welcoming the scouts. 

*Recently, the board of Little House of Glencoe decided that in the best interest of the future of Little House, we would go back to its original roots and limit rentals to scout troops and not-for-profit organizations only.  Not-for-profit groups will be required to present a current Not-For-Profit certificate from the State of Illinois in order to rent.  We feel that by doing this, we are able to give back even more to those groups that have helped us to maintain the house and its mission.  

All previously paid rentals that are not part of a scout troops or a NP group will be honored.

Groups of no more than 30 people will be allowed
