Get ready for an ARCTIC BLAST as we launch a super exciting Lake Minnetonka /Northern Lights Winter Camporee!   

ARCTIC BLAST will run from Friday Feb 10 through Sunday Feb 12, 2017.  Lake Minnetonka and Northern Lights will be hosting this camporee where learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) meet good ol’ winter fun!  We plan to offer a great mix of indoor and outdoor activities that will appeal to Boy Scouts, Webelos, and Venturers.  Join us as we hold rocket building demonstrations and then launch rockets from a frozen lake!  Along with model rocket displays and demos of large rocket launches and drones, we will offer model hot air balloons and a thin-ice rescue demonstration.  

Bring your ready-made rockets to launch!

During the weekend we’ll also hold classic outdoor games such as broom ball, snow football, and more!  We'll also hold our annual KLONDIKE DERBY.  Your unit can either camp outside and try to earn the “Zero Hero” award, or we’ll have a limited number of inside bunks too. Your Webelos Den, Troop, or Crew is welcome to participate for the whole weekend, or just for the day on Saturday, February 11th. 

WEBELOS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND - Webelos can participate in all of the camporee activities in addition to special programing just the Webelos, including cooking on an fire, special Webelos crafts, competitions, camping, and FUN!

The location for this camporee will be at the brand new Tonkawa Lodge at Camp Stearns.  

The Informational Packet is now available by using the link provided below.


Register now and join us for the ARCTIC BLAST!


We look forward to seeing all of you at our Winter Camporee!
