Summer camp is just around the corner.  Here are some tips to help in your planning process.


  • All registration needs to be electronic and is due by May 5, 2023.  
  • Please only unit registrations.  Individual registrations create additional work for staff.
  • Remember to save your registration receipt as this is your "ticket" back into the system to enter merit badges.
  • Super Saver Units are Twin Valley Council units only.  2023 qualifiers are:  Troops 4, 8, 24, 42, 58, 68, 69, 76, 84 and 95.
  • Camp T-shirts must be ordered at time of registration to guarantee a shirt.  Limited supply will be available at the Cuyuna Trading Post.
  • May 6, 2023, the system will automatically update prices to $360 per Scout.  
  • If you have a new Scout join your troop after May 5, 2023, they should use the "New Scout" registration option to give them the Early Bird rate.
  • All registrations and fee are final except for a very limited number of circumstances and then it is only a partial refund.
  • "Be Prepared" during the registration process to answer the question "Will your troop need Commissary meals, both lunch and dinner, on Wednesday?"
  • "Be Prepared" during the registration process to answer the question "How many years attendance at Cuyuna Summer Camp does this Scout have?"

Campsite Reservations

  • A $100 non-refundable fee is needed to hold your site.  C

2024 - Site Reservations for the 2024 Summer Camp will open September 5, 2023.  You will not be able to reserve same sight, same week when you leave camp.

Expedition Wilderness - An Older Scout Program

  • Plans are underway to launch a new Older Youth Program!
  • This program is being designed by a team of highly skilled outdoors people, including a retired Army Infantryman.
  • This is not something "you've already done!"
  • Expedition Wilderness will take place on Thursday and Friday of your week at camp (excludes Week 2).  It lasts 24 hours.
  • Due to the nature of this expedition, it is limited to Scouts age 14+ who have obtained the rank of First Class.
  • To register for this program please select Expedition Wilderness as a merit badge option.
  • There are no additional fees for this expedition.
  • Details will be added as they become available.

Merit Badges Changes

  • Summer Camp is not a Merit Badge Midway.  Scout should have time to enjoy other aspects of camp as well.
  • Camp Staff and Twin Valley Council suggest no more than 4 merit badges for any Scout, with only 1 merit badge for those participating in Eagle Trail.
  • Full day merit badges from 2022 have been changed from all day to 2 parts offered on different days (half day each).
  • If there is more than one part to a merit badge, Scouts will automatically be signed up for both parts when selecting the badge during registration.
  • Each merit badge now has a "recommended age" added to the merit badge description.  This is to aid Scouts in choosing appropriate merit badges.

"Build Your Adventure Wednesdays"

  • Wednesdays will be days to design your own adventures.
  • Both In-Camp and Out-of-Camp opportunities are available.
  • During Week 2, Build Your Adventure will move to Tuesday, July 4th, and programming on July 4th will move to Wednesday.
  • Please talk to camp staff for ideas in planning your adventure.
  • There's a great big world out there, venture towards something new and exciting this year!  Get out of your comfort zone!

Neckerchief Recognition Program

  • New for 2023!
  • First Year Campers will receive the Eagle Trail neckerchief.
  • Second Year Campers the Paul Bunyan neckerchief.
  • Third Year Campers means a Northwoods neckerchief followed by 4th Year Campers receiving the Voyageurs.
  • Scout who are 5 Year Campers+ will receive Star pins indicating years of camping.
  • Units should "Be Prepared" to enter during the registration process, how many years of Cuyuna attendance each Scout.  This does not include staff years.
  • Cuyuna Staff will have a recognition program as well.

Skilled Trade Specialty Camp

  • This awesome experience is available the week of July 9-15, 2023, in conjunction with Week 3 of Camp.
  • Scouts will learn demolition, tile work, plumbing, electrical work and more.
  • This is real hands-on practical experience while working on actual camp projects.
  • Scouts will earn portions of three merit badges:  Home Repair, Plumbing and Painting.
  • This experience is not all work!  Scouts will also have time to enjoy camp activities such as fishing, the arcade area, swimming, boating and more!
  • Camp cost is the same as regular camp fees.
  • This experience is limited to first six participants who sign up.  Wait list is available after that.
  • If your troop is at Cuyuna Week 3, you can camp, eat, etc. with them.  Otherwise, you can camp and dine with Camp Staff.
