Scouts BSA Winter Camp Opportunities

Enjoy an outfitted weekend of winter fun with our trained Winter Camp Staff in January or February. Staying warm is easy when we provide cold weather training, winter clothing, camping equipment, excellent meals, and outdoor activities. Our tiered programs and commitment to innovation ensures fun for all experience levels a new challenges each winter.


Both locations offer our standard winter camping programs, Experience and Spearhead. Experience is designed for Scouts newer to winter camping: you'll sleep indoors but spend the full day outdoors doing activities in the snow. Spearhead will present the additional challenege of sleeping outdoors in shelters you create, but comes with more advanced program offerings, including Snow Sports merit badge.

North Wind offers Search & Rescue merit badge during select weekends and a Saturday-only Ice Fishing program where participants can earn Fishing merit badge.

Snow Base offers Dog Sledding every weekend, but has extremely limited space.

For more information on dates and price, see the Winter Camping Catalog.


We have two different locations with very similar offerings - choose whichever is best for you!

North Wind is based out of Stearns Scout Camp in South Haven, MN.
