You do NOT want to miss this year's Twilight Camp! This camp is a blast and our trip through time will provide new adventures every day.

Have you registered yet? If not! HURRY! Early bird registration ends April 30th and offers a great discount and ensures that your son will get a shirt and patch.

If you've never been to Twilight Camp, it's an excellent way for your cubs to have a lot of fun while advancing on their Cub Scout trail! It is the perfect place for Cubs to earn belt loop and rank advancement while getting out of the house for a week with their friends. The Cub Scouts will participate in daily activities that include BB guns, archery, crafts, Scout skills, field games and sports, and more. More information.

Our goal is to have all top leaders trained.  What does it mean to be trained?  It is dependent upon your current position.  Click here  for definition of what it means to be  "Trained".  Northern Trail makes every effort to get you the training  you need so that you in turn can promote and conduct an excellent program .   There are times when our course timing may not work for you.  You should not have to postpone your training.
