Late in the summer of 2008, the board of directors of Northern Star Council stated that if sufficient funds to achieve unfunded development plans at other properties are not raised, that Rum River Scout Camp will be sold and replaced with alternative facilities in the Anoka County area.

Ranger Bob has asked us to compile ahistory of the camp to document its past and perpetuate the fact it existed.
The Northern Lights Chapter of the Order of the Arrow has agreed to co ordinate this project.This project is in two forms:
A memory album to remember all of the great times that were had at Rum River Camp and of the people who made them happen. We would like anyone, young and old,to share their thoughts aboutRum River Scout Camp. We have alreadyreceived a few recollections. Our goal is to gather enough input topublish a hard copy volume for the future. Suggested entries are; First visit to camp, Most memorable experience at camp, What camp has meant to you.
Please take a moment and write them down in out guestbook. Click on the buttons above to access the guestbook or click here.
Allcontributions of thoughts are welcome.
We are compiling a Power Point slide show todocument and displaythe camp throughout
its history. We have plenty of current pictures. What we are really searching for
now is dated information, history. We need facts and dates to verify the camps development
and any pictures that could show the growth, progress and activity at camp. We think
we know many of the answers but want to be sure they are correct and accurate before
Thank you for your help
