Cuyuna Scout Camp

Escape to where your values meet value…

Cuyuna Family Camp offers a chance for seclusion at a facility that isn’t over developed. It is located on Lake Pickerel in a heavily wooded area approximately 30 miles north of Brainerd and four miles north of Cross lake. With 684 acres the camp boasts beautiful wooded areas and is known for its birch and pine trees. Cuyuna is strictly for families of Scouts so you can expect all campers to observe the Scout Oath and Law in their camping practices.

Here is an opportunity for families of BSA registered Scouts to experience first hand what summer camp is like at Cuyuna!  Spend time at the BB Gun range, test your ability at the climbing tower, experience nature on a hike, grab your gear and take time for fishing.  Cuyuna Scout Camp will be open for your enjoyment. 

Back to Basics

Resident Camp (summer camp) is offered each summer during the months of June, July, and August. Cuyuna Scout Camp offers a chance for seclusion at a 684 acre facility that is not overdeveloped.
