Camp Wilderness
Northern Lights Council is home to Camp Wilderness, which is located in Northern Minnesota on Bad Axe Lake, located near Emmaville, Minnesota just north of Park Rapids. Founded by Herman Stern and some other businessmen in the region in 1946, Camp Wilderness is a 2,400 acres (9.7 km2) camp. On August 18, 2006, the camp celebrated its 60th Anniversary by opening the Butler Wilderness Outpost, a Cub Scout camp for the scouts to attend. Camp Wilderness is, in area, the largest Boy Scout camp owned and operated by an area Scouting Council, although the National Council owns the much-larger Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico, and the slightly larger Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base, also located in Minnesota.

Famous quotes containing the words northern lights, council, northern and/or lights:

    You’ll wait a long, long time for anything much
    To happen in heaven beyond the floats of cloud
    And the Northern Lights that run like tingling nerves.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Warmest climes but nurse the cruelest fangs: the tiger of Bengal crouches in spiced groves of ceaseless verdure. Skies the most effulgent but basket the deadliest thunders: gorgeous Cuba knows tornadoes that never swept tame northern lands.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I could take the Harlem night
    and wrap around you,
    Take the neon lights and make a crown,
    Take the Lenox Avenue buses,
    Taxis, subways,
    And for your love song tone their rumble down.
    Langston Hughes (1902–1967)
