The Scoutmaster Bucky program is a volunteer run program managed and maintained entirely by Brian Reiners (Scoutmaster Bucky) in conjunction with the council of Northern Star Scouting and other Scouting volunteers. All content, scheduling, arrangements, and the like are managed by Scoutmaster Bucky. All proceeds collected go to cover program expenses and operating costs (including but not limited to building rentals, program materials, class materials, and technology support), with any profits (when and if there are any) put back into the Scouting program annually.
Refund Policy & Contact Information
Requests for refunds or cancellations will be honored up to a week prior to any event.
Scoutmaster Bucky is Brian Reiners and is registered in Northern Star Scouting of the Boy Scouts of America.
Mark your calendar and prepare for a wilderness survival scenario – can you survive the Clever Coyote challenge? Participants will experience a simulated survival event where their wits and resourcefulness are put to the test. There is a new challenge each year.
Your airplane is malfunctioning and is unable to stay aloft. The pilot calls for mayday and the worst imaginable scenario happens – the flight crashes. You survive with a couple others. You're in unfamiliar territory and you've still got a job to do.
Open to adventurous youth involved with any Scouting program, as well as adults that would like to compete against the kids. Visit the Clever Coyote website for more about this event plus a lot of great videos to help you prepare for the challenges ahead.
Hosted at Birch Bend Campground just west of Lake Mille Lacs in central Minnesota – a short drive north of the Twin Cities.
