The 360 wooded acres at CAB provide the perfect setting for a variety
of activities for enjoying the outdoors. The property borders the Flat
River on its western side with a large lake, two smaller lakes,
marshes, pond, and large stands of pine and hardwood trees.
Over the last five years several of CAB's buildings have been
repaired, remodeled, or updated with new amenities. The Activity
Center is available for troop meetings. It features a meeting space, a
kitchenette (with stove and refrigerator), and a full bathroom. The
Pavilion provides an activity area, sheltered from the sun or rain.

This was a gift to the Girl Scouts in 1946, by Dr. Charles A. Behrens
as a memorial to his mother and father, Anna and August Behrens.
Anticipating the possible growth of Girl Scouting, Dr. Behrens
generously provided for the sale of the 40-acre Lake Michigan property
towards the purchase of a new larger site.
