Philosophy of the Northern Lights Council Summer Camps

 Our purpose as a Staff is to provide a flexible program which can be used by Units with their own leadership toward the attainment of the objectives of Scouting: 

 Character Building.  Citizenship Training.  Physical and Mental Fitness.

With this purpose in mind, we must strive to reach certain goals in the conduct of our camp program—

 ¨ To seek out new ways to help the youth we serve recognize and develop all that is positive within them.

 ¨ To work to strengthen the year-round program of every troop that attends camp.

 ¨ To provide increased support and flexibility for the development of the individual troop's summer camp program.

 ¨ To give leaders a better understanding of Scout methods of camping.

 ¨ To encourage and aid leaders in the development of strong, functional patrols.

 ¨ To set an unparalleled standard of professionalism and excellence in everything we do.

 ¨ To maintain the momentum developed in previous summers by continuing to developing new and exciting program
