Scouts BSA Winter Camp
Scouts can attend Camp Wilderness all winter long! Our heated cabins are available for rent on weekends with programs, and during the week. Week long Winter Camp, Program weekends, and freestyle weekends bring a winter experience unlike any other.
Rent cross country skis, snowshoes and ice fishing supplies to get the most out of your Winter Camp experience! Our two sledding hills offer endless hours of fun and laughter.
Every cabin is heated with electricity. Some program weekends offer food service, but Units are able to cook their own food. All cabins have mattresses in them with a shower and bathroom facility near by.
Winter Camp is a fun opportunity for all families and troops!
2021 Winter Camp Update
The health and safety of our Scouts and leaders is our top priority. Given the ongoing pandemic and mandates in place for the state of Minnesota, we are not able to accommodate units at camp in the same manner as previous years. The council camping committee has decided to cancel the ROMP weekend on January 29-31. A virtual ROMP and Cub Polar Day event will be scheduled for early March. In addition, remaining Winter Camp weekends will be limited to Family Camping only (meaning up to two family’s per cabin). Food service (take out) and programs will be available on the weekends indicated. We know that this is disappointing news, but there is light at the end of the tunnel with vaccination and decreasing case counts. We are planning to have a normal summer camp program and get back to normal Scouting activities as soon as possible.
