Legionville School Patrol Training Center, Inc. is the only one of its kind in the country and was established by the Minnesota American Legion for the purpose of training young children in the correct school patrol procedures.
The American Legion has been upgrading this facility in order to make it safe and a year-round place that can be used by veterans and other organizations as well as school patrol training.
Veterans from the St. Cloud VA Hospital look forward each year to a turkey hunt and deer hunt on the 600 acres of Legionville.
Thousands of children from the state of Minnesota have attended Legionville School Patrol Camp since it was first established in 1948 and run by the Minnesota Highway Patrol.
All proceeds from the Camp-O-Ree support Legionville to keep the grounds and programs running.
