Northern Star Council Base Camp Open House and Dedication

Posted on 07 September 2010 by admin

On Saturday, October 2, between 12:00 noon and 4:00 PM, Northern Star Council’s Base Camp will host an open house and dedication to give visitors a look inside and a taste of the tremendous program opportunities it offers to our Scouting family and all youth groups. This is the first Northern Star Council camp to open in more than 20 years, and a great kickoff to our second century!

You are invited and encouraged to attend this exciting event! The Open House will be a much casual event with no preregistration or fee. Car pooling is recommended, with some participants already planning to arrive by light rail, bicycle, hiking and even by canoe.

Northern Star Council hopes to see you there!
