Council Convention

2022 Will be our first ever Council Convention!

Education, Fellowship, Food and Fun with other Scouters across the Northern Lights Council. Join us April 29 and 30 in Jamestown for our first every Council Convention. This event does replace our Annual Council Banquet. The awards previously given on that day and each district’s Award of Merit will be a part of our lunch program at the Council Convention.

Northern Lights Council is considered one of the best councils in the nation and it’s because of you, the Scouters, Scouts, volunteers and family that make up our Scouting community. Gathering together to celebrate and recognize all you do for youth. We hope it will become on of your favorite events each year. This is the time of year we get to share our admiration and appreciation for you and get to say thanks, for being the support that keeps Scouting the amazing program it is.

This is one of the not-to-be-missed events of the year!  No matter your position in Scouting is, there are breakouts for you!
