Thank you for your interest in Scouts!

Like you, we have been deeply affected by the Coronavirus. We temporarily closed our doors, asked our employees to work from home, and advised our members, volunteers and staff to heed all public safety recommendations.

The youth in our area are also making a tremendous sacrifice. They are missing out on so many of the things that make this time in their lives so special and meaningful.

As such, Scouting has never been more important to our youth and communities. We are committed to the mission . . . actively planning service projects and our character-building youth programs.

While we haven’t been able to conduct activities and events like we normally do, we are implementing some new programs to allow our Scouts to continue along their journey and keep building those necessary skills. In May we are holding our annual Scouts BSA Camporee online, rather than in person. We are also hosting several online merit badge opportunities. Twin Valley Council is committed to helping our youth stay focused and on track as much as possible during this difficult time.

Twin Valley Council BSA urgently needs your help to keep these opportunities going. Please click on the DONATE NOW button to contribute to our Friends of Scouting campaign.

Thank you for your support.


The Council operates three outstanding Scouting camps;  Cedar Point, Norseland and Cuyuna Scout Camp.

Cedar Point Scout Camp

With woods and water, Cedar Point is a great place for Scouts to experience all that nature and Scouting offers. Camp for a day or for a week.

Norseland Scout Camp

Norseland features water and winding trails, with open space for tenting and activities such as the new Orienteering Games Course.

Cuyuna Scout Camp

Cuyuna Scout Camp offers a back to basics approach to the patrol method including having the patrols cook most of their meals. Resident Camp (summer camp) is offered each summer during the months of June, July, and August. Cuyuna Scout Camp offers a chance for seclusion at a 684 acre facility that is not overdeveloped.

Cuyuna Family Camp

Cuyuna Family Camp offers a chance for seclusion at a facility that isn’t over developed. It is located on Lake Pickerel in a heavily wooded area approximately 30 miles north of Brainerd and four miles north of Cross lake. The 684 acres the camp boasts beautiful wooded areas and is known for its birch and pine trees. Cuyuna is strictly for families of Scouts so you can expect all campers to observe the Scout Oath and Law in their camping practices.

These opportunities not only help them when they are young, but carry forward into their adult lives. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.
