Forkhorn at Kiwanis

Learn more about the outdoors

Camp at Kiwanis Scout Camp. Once again we are proud to announce that Northern Star Council, in collaboration with the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, will host two sessions of Forkhorn Camp at Kiwanis this summer. What is Forkhorn Camp? Good question! It is a program for all youth, boys and girls, from 11-18 to learn more about the outdoors and how to enjoy them, as well as safely use firearms or archery tackle for the hunting of wild game.

More information can be found at this link: At Kiwanis we will host a Forkhorn 1, which is a firearms focus, including the earning of MN Firearms Safety Certificate, deer biology, hunter ethics and intro to archery. All of the traditional camp activities are included too, swimming, canoeing, fishing, rock climbing, hiking, overnight experience, and much more! Dates for Kiwanis FH 1 are July 16th- 21.

Forkhorn 2 at Kiwanis this year will be July 30th- August 4th. FH 2 has an archery focus, including earning MN Advanced Bow Hunter Education, following a blood trail, survival skills and deer camp basics, and includes all those fun summer camp activities also. It also has an advanced shooters component, aimed at improving one’s skill with shot placement and accuracy. FH 2 participants must be 12 years old when camp starts and already have MN Firearms Safety completed.

More details can be found, as well as a registration form at the above website link. Fill out your application and return it directly to Camp, if you have further questions they can be answered by the Camp Director at or calling the Camp at 651-433-2801.

Now here is the best part. Forkhorn Camp normally costs $400, but for a limited time, (April 30th deadline), registered members of Northern Star Council can receive a $200 discount if they are signed up and paid by the deadline. Minnesota Deer Hunter Association members can apply for a scholarship of up to $300 from their local MDHA Chapter, but only one of the two opportunities for savings can be used per participant. Act now, class size is limited to 24 participants per session!
