About Us

New Adventure Comes to Life in an Old Building

Base Camp is located at historic Fort Snelling in what was once the cavalry drill hall. The building is brought to life with opportunities including rock climbing, ropes courses, archery, and team 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.




Base Camp is conveniently located off of Highway 55 and Bloomington Road in Fort Snelling, Minnesota, 1/3 of a mile from the Fort Snelling Light Rail station.
