Troop 1 is a welcoming and inclusive Boy Scout troop for boys aged 11 through 18. We meet every Monday from 6:30 - 8:00 PM at Minnehaha United Methodist Church, 3701 East 50th Street. We are an active outdoor-oriented troop, with a camping trip every month, a high adventure camp every summer, and a week long summer camp.

Summer Camp, July 14 - 21, 2018:
Summer Camp will be at Tomahawk Scout Reservation, Chippewa Subcamp (the one with the dining hall).

You can sign up here, expressing your program interests https://goo.gl/forms/7J2rN84nsuhGLGDB2; we will select individual Scouts' merit badges closer to camp. Scouts who are interested in the older Scout programs, particularly STEM, Apostle Islands Sea Kayaking, and Treks, are encouraged to sign up early, as registration for these spaces will being April 1.

The cost is $287 per Scout, which covers primary food and camp fees; some merit badges have additional material fees, and Scouts should have a little spending money for the trading post (which apparently keeps the camp running entirely on the sale of Slushees ...). There are typically incidental charges at the end of the week of $20 per Scout.

A $25 deposit per Scout will be paid on April 15. Camperships are available from Northern Star Council to help pay for camp--details are available here: http://www.northernstarbsa.org/financial-assistance-for-camps

Individual fundraising can be applied to the cost.
