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!

Summer camp is often the greatest week of summer! Join in the fun.
We'll be sleeping in canvas tents, dining at our campsite, and doing all the scout things.
Registration is in stages this year.
Program sign-up first opens up on April 5 and prioritizes the oldest Scouts, based on age at camp. Each week, we are able to register more Scouts.

Registration is due by April 13.

Payment:
Camp costs $327 for youth
Financial Assistance:
NSC Campership Fund
Troop 1 believes financial barriers should not prevent any scout from attending summer camp. If NSC Campership does not cover the entire need, please reach out to committee chair, Quentin Randolph.

Full payment is due May 24 for the early registration discount.

Troop 1 will be making payment to NSC on behalf of scouts. If your scout account doesn't have enough to cover camp (check your balance via scoutbook), you can make payment to via check to BSA Troop 1.
