Camping and outdoor programs have been at the heart of Scouting for more than 100 years.  The Northern Lights Council is committed to providing excellent outdoor programs for youth of all ages at our unique council properties.

We offer year-round outdoor programs to help youth challenge themselves and grow into leaders.  Our programs use the natural surroundings to contribute to the physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth of youth.

For more information on the council camping operations, contact Missy Hendrickx Camping Director by email or by phone at (218) 252-8706.

Camp Registration Help

Did you know you can enable parents to fill in details, make payments, and even signup for classes as part of camp registration? This makes registration easy and simple for leaders. Look for the parent portal guide for parents to help them.
