Register for Summer Camp 2023! -

Camp Minsi, located in the heart of the Pocono mountains, has been serving Scouts for over 70 years. The regional Scout summer camp encompasses more than 1,200 acres of beautiful and pristine Pennsylvanian woodlands along the shores of the 314-acre Stillwater Lake.

In the summer of 2022, Scouts from more than 100 different troops, crews and ships visited Camp Minsi (with representation from over 27 different BSA councils, 9 US states, and 4 countries) and enjoyed a week full of swimming, sailing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, shooting, welding, singing, hiking, panning for gold, mucking, canoeing, crafting, laughing, and so much more!

Camp Minsi provides unique and exciting programs for Scouts of all ages from throughout the United States. Summer camp is the pinnacle of Scouting’s outdoor program. Each summer is filled with new programs and activities designed to peak the interests of every Scout including a top-notch first-year camper program to help Scouts on the trail to First Class and exciting high adventure opportunities (such as horseback riding, whitewater rafting and the unique Minsi Muck Hike) for the older Scouts.
 
We are extremely excited for the 2023 summer camp season at Camp Minsi. We have a great staff lined up of experienced and enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to making sure every Scout’s stay at camp the absolute best. This summer we're planning to introduce a variety of great new programs and experiences while continuing to build on our lasting traditions. This website is your first resource to answering your summer camp questions. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us (campminsi@minsitrails.org).
