Want To Make A Reservation At Cuyuna?

At least one adult in your group MUST BE BSA registered to reserve the cabins. It doesn’t matter if you are new to using Cuyuna or a long time visitor. It doesn’t matter if you are at Cuyuna for a relaxing visit or plan to volunteer your time working at various jobs. Eagle Scouts – new and not so new – everyone must be BSA registered.  

Families like to use Cuyuna Family Camp cabins to get away. By having a person become BSA registered we are able to do a background check. Our goal is to have every adult on site at Cuyuna be BSA registered – Twin Valley Council needs to know who is using our facilities. We are also not licensed or insured to be a campground, we are a Boy Scout camp. So again, the need to be BSA registered becomes important.

Contact Camp Cuyuna

Please contact Camp Cuyuna at 218-692-3612 or to check cabin availability before making your reservation.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Scout Executive Ray Brauer.

Any questions about BSA registration can be directed to Janelle at the Twin Valley Council Center for Scouting 507-387-3123.
