NOTICE: Due to concerns and uncertainty related to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we regret to announce that the 2021 Winter IceFest programs at Camp Minsi scheduled for February 13th have been cancelled.

We believe that this is the best decision for the safety of all our Scouts, leaders and volunteers. Although many precautions would have been taken, we believe that social distancing could not be safely maintained with an event of this size, nor could we adequately provide appropriate warming areas for everyone given the frigid conditions of February in the Pocono mountains and the increased requirements by the CDC.

We want to offer our sincere thanks to our ice fishing expert Paul Ulicny and the other volunteers who were preparing the programs for this event. If your unit is planning on camping at Camp Minsi this winter and would like to experience ice fishing, please feel free to reach out to Paul directly (pulicny@yahoo.com). As an active member of the campmaster corps at Camp Minsi. Paul is willing to help coordinate individual opportunities, demos and presentations for smaller groups at camp; however the large festival-style program we had planned is not able to happen this year.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you and your Scouts remain engaged in Scouting and safe during these difficult times.

Come experience winter at Camp Minsi with a day of fun on the frozen water of Stillwater Lake. Programs will run from 9AM to 4PM on Saturday; units are responsible for their own accommodations, meals and leadership. Units can reserve overnight accommodations in our online registration system.

The IceFest programs includes:

  • Our annual ice fishing extravaganza - including hands-on ice fishing demos on Stillwater Lake, equipment displays, and cooking demos.
  • Winter snow and ice games - including ice golf, ice auger relays, snowshoe races, and more!
  • Ice safety presentation and rescue tutorials.
  • Special presentations and displays on old time timbering tools and the historic ice harvesting industry of the Poconos and Stillwater Lake.
  • Winter hikes and camp tours.
  • Refreshments, fellowship and fireplace.
  • Food, drinks and lunch (hotdogs, chili, chips, sodas, etc) available for purchase in the Dining Hall (or bring and cook your own).
  • The program costs $8 per person -- includes a collectible patch and hot beverage refreshments for all participants.

Event is snow or shine!  Ice access will be based on thickness of the ice and outdoor conditions at camp.
