Kiwanis Scout Camp

Marine on St. Croix, MN


About 10 miles north of Stillwater on the banks of the beautiful St. Croix River, this 104 acre property is idyllic setting. With a mix of woods, open fields, and access to the river, Kiwanis Scout Camp is the perfect place to relax and have fun. Offering plenty of indoor housing, a condensed layout, complete wifi coverage and multiple conference spaces, Kiwanis is a popular choice for both training events and outings for young participants.

Though the property has operated as a camp since 1922, the Scouts have only been involved since 1989. In that year we began a formal partnership with the St Paul Kiwanis Foundation to lease the property and host a brand new experiment - overnight summer camp for Cub Scouts! Attendance and use of the camp has grown and we now operate a full menu of year round activities.
