Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation
Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Storm UpdatesOn the evening of Friday, July 19, 2019 Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation was hit by a severe thunderstorm. Camp suffered substantial damage. Thousands of trees are down. Many buildings and program areas require reconstruction.
Though the clean-up process will be lengthy and costly, we will rebuild Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation with your support.
We will be open in 2020, providing summer camp programs for BSA Scouts and Webelos nationwide. To connect with others who love Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan, go to our Facebook page or type in #MaKaJaWanMonday on Facebook for rebuilding updates.

From Scout Executive/CEO Nick Roberts:
Final Week 4 Update
I am on-the-ground at camp with our ranger and leadership team. A local logging company and our camp staff are working to get roads opened and assisting our remaining week 4 campers on departing for home safely.
Camp suffered substantial damage to many of our facilities and campsites. I have decided that we cannot safely operate camp the remainder of the 2019 summer.
While I am disappointed to report this early closing; the safety of our Scouts, leaders, and staff is our first priority.
Summer Fun Since 1929!
