Webelos Leaders Guide History

As seen in the Webelos Camp Historical Archive leaders guides.

Camp Stearns is located near Fairhaven, Minnesota, bordering Lake Caroline, Clearwater River and Lake Augusta. It contains 1200 acres of open field, forest, and marshes making it an ideal setting for outdoor activities.

The camp, originally called "Heritage", was opened in 1968 after several property purchases, most notably from the daughter of George Crosby. George Crosby was a well-known naturalist, donor, Scouter and owner of WCCO. Crosby Lodge is named after him and was given to the camp by his family. See Camp Dedication Ceremony text

Since 1968 construction and development of outdoor facilities have resulted from the efforts of numerous individuals and volunteer groups and donors. There are currently five different camp areas that are used year round by districts, Order of the Arrow chapters, Camporalls and various training programs including, Wood Badge, Pine Tree, and Webelos Camp.

Over the years many different activities have been staged at Camp Stearns. The all-season accessibility and program is widely used by over 10,000 Scouts and Scouters yearly. It is our hope that during your stay you'll have the opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty of this valuable resource that we call Camp Stearns.
