Located just five miles northeast of Stillwater, the camp is situated along the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix River. The property is divided into two levels with 260 acres of woods and rock bluffs to explore. A trading post with snacks, patches, souvenirs, craft items, and Scouting literature is available. A detailed map of Fred C. Andersen's is here.

Deadline extended to Sat., May 10

To ensure that our volunteers can properly plan for the many people who will attend; your payments, Family Camp Registration Form and other required forms must be received by the Outings Chair no later than Saturday, May 10.

Registrations received after the May 10 Pack Deadline will be wait-listed with no guarantee of enrollment.

Read Pack 151's Outings Policy for more info.

This historic camp is located along the beautiful St. Croix in Wisconsin.

Hiking destinations include "Friendship Rock", this unique stone amphitheater.

Everyone pitches in, but we need extra help.

Family Camp is a hands-on experience for all participants. Helping cook meals and keeping the campsite clean is a responsibility for all. In addition, we need extra volunteers, preferably with some experience to plan meals, coordinate gear, plan and help with age-appropriate activities, etc. You'll have plenty of help. Can we count on you? Contact Brandi Werra, the Pack's Committee Chair for a list of volunteer opportunities.

Weekend Overnighter Options: Choosing a Tent or Group Cabin

If you choose a Weekend Overnighter Option: In accordance with the Boy Scouts of Americia's requirements the Pack must follow the BSA's Guide to Safe Scouting, privacy and sleeping arrangement Standards and Youth Protection policies.  Male and female adults require separate sleeping facilities. Married couples may share the same quarters. Male and female youth participants must not share the same sleeping facility.

Weekend Overnighter options include:

  1. Tents: Married couples are allowed to sleep together with their children in a tent they bring to camp. No youth is allowed in the tent of an adult other than his/her parent or guardian.
  2. Group cabins: Separate male & female group cabins are a good option for campers who prefer not to sleep in tents and those who aren't allowed by BSA rules to sleep in a tent together.  These will be the Peterson 1 & 2 cabins.

Registration requirements

For each person in your family wishing to attend, each of the following forms must be turned in. Use the links below to download and print the necessary forms.

For your family group, please complete and turn in the 

If You Attended Fall Festival or Polar Cubs:

If you attended Fall Festival or Polar Cubs this past year, we may have your Annual Health & Medical Records, health insurance ID photocopies, and Camping Participant Waivers on file. Please ask the Outings Chair if any of your already completed forms are on file.

What to bring?

The Pack will bring along camping equipment, but we'll also rely on everyone to supplement our gear. More information will be provided in the weeks ahead.  If you plan on sleeping in a tent, you'll need to bring yours from home.

Camperships available

Pack 151 believes every boy should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of camping, and wants to provide the opportunity for registered boys to go to camp. These experiences help boys learn new skills and advance through the ranks of Scouting. The intent of "Camperships" is to ensure that any boy with financial difficulties is not denied the opportunity to attend camping programs. Contact Pack Committee Chair Brandi Werra or Cubmaster Charlie Niven for more info.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Turn in your Registration

Please give me an envelope containing all your Registration Requirements at an upcoming Pack Meeting.  You can also drop it off anytime in a small plastic "Cub Scouts Drop Box" on my front porch.  Just make sure I receive it by May 10.

Please email me if you have any Family Camp questions, or if you can offer us a little extra help.
