Unit Meetings at Camp

Unit Meetings at Camp

During the pandemic, Camp Northern Star is offering the use of facilities, at no cost, to units to hold regular Pack, Troop or Crew meetings. We hope that this can help units stay active and keep Scouting strong in a time where many meeting locations are no longer available due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Who can utilize facilities?

Any registered Scouting unit that is experiencing issues securing a meeting location.

What facilities are available?

We have secured space at five of our metro camp properties for this purpose. Some of these facilities have multiple rooms for use as breakout spaces.

How long will this program be in effect?

We will continue to offer rooms at no cost through the end of 2020 and, likely, through 2021. We will re-evaluate based on pandemic conditions in December 2020.
