Flag Field

Park Rapids, Minnesota 56470, United States

Created By: North Dakota State University


The Flag Field at Camp Wilderness has been used since the first campers arrived in 1946. It serves as the location for flag ceremonies, a staple tradition at Scout camps across the nation since 1910.

Every morning and evening during summer camp season the staff and campers gather at the flag field to say the pledge of allegiance, the Scout Oath, Scout Law, make announcements, say grace, and sing.

The Flag Field also serves as the area many scouts practice nautical flag signaling, and orienteering with a compass and map.
