Northern Tier is the site of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Cold Weather Camping Development Center. Our Cold Weather Leadership Training program combines an on-base seminar curriculum with a hands-on, on-ice training (including two nights on the trail).
This five-day course is a condensed version of the same curriculum we give to our staff. It is fun, informative and an excellent preparation for designing and leading your own troop and council level winter camping adventures. Minimum age is 18 by arrival at Northern Tier.
The 2020 CWLT Course will take place at the 2020 Kapvik location, Gerber Scout Reservation in Muskegon, Michigan
January 9-14, 2020
