Camporee Series Overview
Join your fellow Troops and Crews from across Northern Star Scouting for a weekend of Scout skills, and fellowship during our two Fall Camporee weekends. Fall Camporees are an excellent opportunity for your unit to demonstrate proficiency in Scout skills and teamwork. Each Fall Camporee event is open to all Northern Star Scouts BSA Troops or Venture Crews regardless of district affiliation.
The 2021 Fall Camporee series will be held on two different weekends. Join us September 24-26 at Stearns Scout Camp, or October 8-10 at Phillippo Scout Reservation.
Our 2021 theme is Scouting Heritage, and we will be offering the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge in addition to skills stations and other activities. Expect to partake in learning old Scout skills from past rank advancement requirements and Merit Badges, as well as tour an on-site museum. The camporee packet with details and registration information will be distributed at a later date. We hope to see you this Fall!

Webeols and Arrow of Light Scout (4th /5th grade Webelos) Participation
Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts are encouraged to attend, but must register with an attending unit. Skills instruction and programming will focus on the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge requirements and basic Scout skills.

This event is considered a transition and retention activity and Webelos can participate alongside Scouts BSA Troops.
COVID-19 Information/ Frequently Asked Questions (Updated 6/25/2021)
Current COVID-19 Requirements:
- Face coverings are recommended for unvaccinated individuals when social distancing is not possible.
- Indoor groupings of 25 persons max are still recommended as this may help prevent widespread impact if an individual in attendance is infected.
- Face coverings will be required for all participants when indoors or in an enclosed space during programs where youth are present.
- All participants should follow posted capacity limits of indoor spaces.
What if a participant shows symptoms of COVID-19 after attending a Fall Camporee event?
Our expectation is that any participant who exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 would promptly contact their physician for evaluation. If a test is administered and the results are positive for COVID-19, a public health official will contact the individual. Please discuss the individual’s involvement in a Scouting activity with them and provide Northern Star’s contact information (Kris Burbank: 612-261-2450 or [email protected]). Public health will reach out to us directly.
If the symptoms occur greater than 14 days after conclusion of the activity the risk of COVID related to the activity or transmission to others present at the activity would be extremely low.
Will meals be provided?
To assist with social distaning best practices, meals will be facilitated by units attending the Fall Camporee events. Please plan on developing your own unit menu and providing equipement accordingly.
Are Health Forms and Pre-Screening Forms required for participants on-site for less than 72 hours?
Yes, all participants remaining on-site will require a Pre-Screening Form and Health Form to be submitted.
