Located in the century-old Cavalry Drill Hall near Fort Snelling, Minnesota, Base Camp is owned and operated by the Northern Star Council, Boy Scouts of America. Completed in the summer of 2018, The Leadership Center is more than a building, it’s a community resource to teach youth leadership skills. This new Leadership Lab is home to the state’s largest Scout Shop, an outdoor climbing wall, and, of course, the Leadership Laboratory!

Our mission is to serve all youth of the greater Twin Cities metro area through school field trips (K-12), lock-ins, retreats, summer camps, private parties, and community group use. We have special outreach programs for under-served populations. Ask for details.
