Play a Round of Disc Golf at Camp Minsi this Summer

Disc golf (also known as Frisbee golf or Frolf) is one of the fastest-growing outdoor activities among youth and young adults. This year Camp Minsi has added a brand new disc golf course for Scouts and Scouters to utilize throughout the summer. Disc golf is a game in which individual players throw a flying disc into a target. According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, "The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc." Disc golf is fun for all ages and athletic ranges.

The Boy Scouts of America have an excellent training module on incorporating Disc Golf into the Scouting program -- you can download it here. If you want to teach disc golf to Scouting volunteers, this module will show you how to do it the Boy Scout way.

Disc golf is a fun way to spend a few free hours at camp, and many merit badge requirements can be geared toward the interest of a Scout who likes disc golf as well. The disc golf course at Camp Minsi is one of many special activities designed to improve your Scouting program – you can use disc golf as an activity, for advancement, and as a great source of service projects. Information on the course can be obtained from the program director throughout the summer. It is a lot of fun to play – we hope to see you out on the course this summer!
