Many Point Scout Camp is a Boy Scout camp located in Ponsford, Minnesota. Operating for over 60 years, it has welcome scouts from across the United States. It is owned and operated by Northern Star Council (formerly Viking Council). It takes its name from Many Point Lake, on which the camp owns several miles of shoreline. The camp encompasses approximately 2,400 acres, and borders the 143,000 acre Tamarack National Wildlife Refuge.

Many Point is open to both Scouts Troops and Venture Crews. There are three subdivisions of the camp that potential Scout Units may camp in which vary mainly in programs offered and dining experience: Voyageur, Ten Chiefs, and Buckskin. Of these, Buckskin utilizes a dining hall; Voyageur and Ten Chiefs require much of the food preparation be done by Scouts in-site.

There is also a high adventure base known as Flintlock that serves Scouters staying at any of the three main camps. Flintlock offers many activities, including horseback riding, an overnight camp-out on a raft on Many Point Lake named Huck Finn, a team-building ropes course called C.O.P.E., and an 80 mile bike ride to Itasca State Park and back.
