Jumpstart is Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation’s very own accelerated program for older scouts who have yet to begin their path to Eagle. The program gives older scouts who are new to Scouts BSA an alternative to the Trailblazer and Wayfinder programs currently offered at camp. Jumpstart focuses primarily on Tenderfoot through First Class Advancement while preparing Scouts for the Journey towards the Eagle Rank. Scouts will have many opportunities to work on Eagle Required Merit Badges with the guidance amazing Staff.

Jumpstart takes place across all of the program areas in each sub-camp respectively and concurrently with the Merit Badge Schedule. Below you can find more information about the Jumpstart Schedule.
