Camp Stearns is located near Fairhaven,  Minnesota.  Originally called “Heritage”, it was opened in 1968.  One of the main activities at the Camp is the annual Webelos Summer Canp experience for 4th and 5th grade Webelos Scouts.  There are separate programs for the 4th and 5th grades and they are named "Heritage" and "Whitewater" respectively.  Materials for each program, and necessary forms can be found on this page and should be thouroughly reviewed to get the most out of Camp.


Webelos Resident Camp has been a successful part of Viking Council’s Scouting program for many years. The program provides opportunities for Webelos Scouts for future years in Scouting by facilitating den development and stimulating individual growth. The design of the Webelos Camp program provides experiences in all facets of Webelos outdoor activities including camping, nature, aquatics, shooting sports, advancement and den development programming. The aim of the program is to provide a quality outdoor experience built through careful consideration of each Webelos Scout’s physical, mental/emotional capabilities, health, safety, respect for each other and respect for the environment. It is the intent of Viking Council and the Webelos Camp staff to give each Webelos Scout, each den, and each adult leader a long remembered quality outdoor experience.

The web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
