Summer Resident Camps

The Northern Lights Council offers 9-10 sessions of Cub Scout Resident Camp each summer and are offered at Butler Wilderness Outpost at Camp Wilderness near Park Rapids, MN and Heart Butte Scout Reservation located southwest of Bismarck on Lake Tschida.  Cub Scout Resident Camp is open to boys and girls in 1st through 5th grade.  It is a great opportunity for a parent and son to enjoy an outdoor overnight camping experience together!

Butler Wilderness Outpost offers both tent camping and indoor camping while Heart Butte Scout Reservation only offers tent camping.  Camps are theme based with a program of exciting and adventurous activities that will make lifetime memories.  Activities include swimming, BB guns, fishing, archery, playing sports, and advancement!  Nights are filled with campfires, fun, games, and lifetime memories!

Cub Day Camps

The Northern Lights Councils offers multiple day camps in each district between June and October to bringing our camping program to your backyard!  Scouts can participate in BB guns, archery, camp games, crafts, and much more.  Click on the links below to learn more about a LOCAL Cub Scout Day Camp!

To help communicate Day Camp information and coordinate the registration of youth, we are asking for each pack to have a Pack Day Camp Coordinator. The coordinators will be invited to participate in a webinar in January and closer to the date of the district camp. Please let us know who your pack's coordinator is by completing the Pack Day Camp Coordinator form.

Winter Camp

Cub Scouts can attend Camp Wilderness all winter long!  Heated cabins, cross country skis, snowshoes, and sleds are all waiting for Cub Scouts this winter!

A variety of heated cabins with electricity are available to rent each weekend at camp.  All cabins have mattresses to sleep in and shower and bathroom facilities are centrally located for your convenience.  This is a fun opportunity for families, dens, and packs!
