2012 Pre-Camp Events - Mark Your Calendars!

For more than 100 years, the tradition of "Be Prepared" has been the motto of the Scouting movement. As such, we have planned several events to help you get prepared for the 2012 summer camp season. Please be sure to mark your calendars for these important pre-camp meetings and events.

Pre-camp Informational Meeting: Thursday, March 1, 2012
Minsi Trails Council will be holding an informational summer camp meeting for unit leaders on March 1, 2012 at Northeast Middle School in Bethlehem, PA. The gathering will start at 6:30PM, with the meeting starting promptly at 7:00PM. The purpose of the meeting is to share information with unit leaders regarding the council's summer camp programs. This meeting also gives leaders an opportunity to ask any questions, connect with other leaders, give feedback, and meet some of our key staff members. All unit leaders are invited to attend this meeting. If you are have any questions, or need directions, please contact the Minsi Trails Council office at 610.264.8551.

Beaver Weekend: Friday, May 11 – Sunday, May 13, 2012
Beaver Weekend is a unique opportunity for service, fellowship, recreation, and camping! Take the opportunity to bring your unit to Camp Minsi for the weekend. You can explore the camp, meet the staff, participate in open programs, and give back to Camp Minsi and Scouting through friendly service. This event is completely free! All we ask in return is that your unit gives a few hours of service to the camp on Saturday. Lunch on Saturday will be provided for all who are participating in the weekend. If your unit decides not to make a weekend out of it, you are invited to come just for the day on Saturday to participate in some of the fellowship events and service projects. If interested, please register your unit as soon as possible. A registration form is located in the resources section of this site.

Pre-camp Leader's Meeting & Luncheon: Saturday, June 16, 2012
Camp Minsi will hold an informational meeting on Saturday, June 16, 2012. This meeting will be held at Camp Minsi in the Dining Hall starting at 12:00 PM. A complimentary lunch will be served as well. This meeting allows us to ensure that all leaders have the accurate and up-to-date information and to answer any questions you may have about your week at camp. You are invited to remain after the meeting to tour camp or check out your campsite. Please do your best to have your unit represented at this meeting. If you are unable to attend, please contact Lisa Empfield, the camp director (, so that she can answer any questions and distribute any vital information to you.
