The Northern Lights Alumni Association has established a digital trail that expands upon the existing Camp Wilderness History Trail.   The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the heritage and legacy of Camp Wilderness and the Northern Lights Council.

Our focus is telling the story of the Northern Lights Council and the camps within—not only by honoring all we have today, but also by remembering where we came from. Our present-day council is the result of the evolution of four councils, four lodges, and many camps.

The Northern Lights History Center’s collections are comprised of various artifacts donated by friends of Scouting. We rely on these donations from people like you to preserve and display the history of the council and its camps. Help us uphold the story of the Northern Lights Council by donating items or by joining the History Committee.
