About Us

New Adventure Comes to Life in an Old Building

Base Camp is located at historic Fort Snelling with two buildings: the TeamBuilding Center in a former cavalry drill hall and the brand new Leadership Center. The Leadership Center is the Northern Star Council headquarters and houses all of the council staff and has the Leadership Lab. The TeamBuilding Center is our main activity building and has been brought to life with opportunities including rock climbing, ropes courses, archery, and team building games. Owned and operated by Northern Star Council, BSA, our mission is to serve all youth through field trips, lock-ins, retreats, summer camps, private parties, and community group activities.

Your Adventure- Led By Our Adventurers

Our program guides all have a passion for helping youth reach their goals. Our Lead Guides have worked each program time and time again and are great at encouraging participants to work as a team. They'll take your group one step higher on the rock wall or conquer a high-ropes challenge they never thought they could.
