Discover Summer Field Trips, Camps, Entertainment, Tours & Fundraising Programs! You’ll find lots of “NEW” at every exhibit booth! New providers, new programs… and more… at the 2023 Summer Resource Fair!

Whether it’s end-of-school year school events, or summer activities, camps, field trips or tours for youth or adults… the SRF is always a very productive “one-stop-shopping” event for activity planners! In addition to talking with many experienced providers, take in Northern Star Scouting’s hugely popular Base Camp.

This year, expect to meet exhibitors offering new & unique FUNDRAISING Programs! From pizza to flowers, there will be product and service opportunities that make sense (and healthy revenue) for your groups!
