CAMPING

Troop 1 tries to spend two nights a month under the stars, in a tent, hammock, quinzhee, or cabin. We have camped at Northern Star Council camps, at Minnesota and Wisconsin state parks, and National Forest Service primitive camps; we're always looking for great places to camp and explore!

$35/$20 afterward (space is limited) + $12 for Food

October Camporee Roster

FAQ:

Do scouts need to bring any specific materials?

  • 10' x 12' tarp

  • enough rope per Scout to secure a tarp to the provided staves in order to build a shelter

  • 9-volt battery

What if I have Scouts that already have earned the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge?

There will be plenty of unique programming at the Camporee to engage Scouts that have already earned the Merit Badge. Stations will be designed to cover Merit Badge requirements, but will be engaging even for those that have already earned the Merit Badge.
