Cub Scouts can attend Camp Wilderness all winter long! Come enjoy all that winter has to offer by spending a weekend up at camp. A variety of heated cabins are available for rent each weekend. All cabins have mattresses to sleep in. Shower and bathroom facilities are centrally located for your convenience. 

Throughout the winter months, enjoy an organized camp event, or pick a weekend to work on your outdoor cooking skills! 

Activities at winter camp include sledding, ice fishing, curling, cross country skiing and so much more! Don't miss out on a fun winter experience.




Sign up to be a Campmaster this winter!

Volunteers can pick one or more weekends in January – early March to help with various roles at camp.

  • Cub Scout Campmaster: acts as the person checking people in and out and as a point of contact for leaders with questions
  • Scouts BSA Campmaster: acts as the person checking people in and out, is a point of contact for leaders, and helps check equipment in and out (skis, snow shoes, etc.)


2021 Winter Camp Update

The health and safety of our Scouts and leaders is our top priority. Given the ongoing pandemic and mandates in place for the state of Minnesota, we are not able to accommodate units at camp in the same manner as previous years. The council camping committee has decided to cancel the ROMP weekend on January 29-31. A virtual ROMP and Cub Polar Day event will be scheduled for early March. In addition, remaining Winter Camp weekends will be limited to Family Camping only (meaning up to two family’s per cabin). Food service (take out) and programs will be available on the weekends indicated. We know that this is disappointing news, but there is light at the end of the tunnel with vaccination and decreasing case counts. We are planning to have a normal summer camp program and get back to normal Scouting activities as soon as possible.

What is the next step?

  • Starting Monday, January 25 at 1pm, you can call the Fargo Center for Scouting to make changes to your registration.
  • By Thursday, January 28, 2021 please let us know if you want to move your registration to another weekend or receive a refund. If you do not let us know, we will cancel your registration, and begin the refund process.

What weekends are available?
