2021 Summer Camp: Adventure is Open!

​It’s time to start moving forward…and in Northern Star that means heading back to camp! We are excited to be able to offer a variety programs this coming summer that will provide opportunities for everyone to experience adventure and reconnect at camp!

In 2020, we had over 4000 youth attend our programs without a single documented case of COVID attributed to camp and we aim to keep that strong record in 2021! Our camps will open this coming June as scheduled.

Based on current guidance from state and national health agencies, we know that we will need to continue some level of COVID mitigation strategies. We will closely monitor the situation throughout the spring and make up or down modifications as needed.

Our goal is to create a memorable, fun, safe experience that is as ‘normal’ as possible!

What will stay the same as 2020 operations?

  • Health screenings and protocols
  • Smaller capacities in dining halls
  • No ‘family=style’ meal service
  • Smaller group sizes during activities
  • Separation among groups
  • Sanitation and handwashing
  • Shared tenting is ok (with parent permission)
  • Carpooling is ok (with parent permission)
  • Face covering and distancing – situational
  • Whole unit can act as a household while in the campsite

What adaptations are we planning for 2021?

  • Dining halls/prepared food at Many Point and Tomahawk
  • Increased choice options
    • Advancement/merit badges
    • Older scout activities
    • Free time
  • Out of state travel is ok
  • Regular trading post operations

Start planning now because we are ready and excited to welcome you back this summer!
