Statement Regarding 2021 Scouts BSA Summer Camp

(posted 4/20/21)

Dear Leaders, Parents, and Scouts:

The Northern Lights Council and camp staff is planning to conduct an exciting summer camp in 2021!

Last year, we were one of only a few council's nationwide that conducted a summer camp program. Our staff did an excellent job in following protocals and there were zero incidents of COVID during the entire summer camp season.

Until the State of Minnesota announces what restrictions will be required in 2021, we are continuing to plan and will adjust as needed.

  • No adjustments in sessions have been made
  • We have had to adjust some of the off-site programs we were planning to offer, but those were not COVID related

Thank you for choosing the Northern Lights Council for your Summer Adventure.  Lord Baden Powell once wrote:  “….the only reason Boys should meet indoors, is to plan to go outside.”  We are committed to helping you deliver on that promise this summer!  Please let us know if you have any questions.


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.

Check out this video and share it with parents:

Scouts can attend Camp Wilderness all winter long! Program weekends, and freestyle weekends bring a winter experience unlike any other.
