Out-of-Season Offerings



Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has camping options available year-round! Whether your troop is looking for a cold-weather experience in the winter, or just a pleasant autumn campground, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has what you need.  NOTE:  Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation is closed for all National Holidays during the off-season, just like our “close-in” campgrounds (Camp Oakarro in Wadsworth, IL and Camp Crown in Trevor, WI).


NOTE: Due to the damage to Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation from The Storm on July 19, 2019, there will be no off-season camping in 2020.

Troops can take advantage of the gorgeous North Woods of Wisconsin all year at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan. Contact our Program Assistant, Debi Geiger at Debi.Geiger@scouting.org (email preferred), or 847-748-9161 for reservation information.

We have a limited number of rustic cabins available for our visitors in the off season only. These are located near the Country Store (a 5-minute walk from West Camp and the Welcome Center). They were built in the late 50s and have the following features, along with an endless amount of Northwoods charm:

  • Each cabin has two bedrooms and can sleep 6-7 people

  • Mattresses provided, but no bedding or pillows

  • Wood stove or Gas Heater. No A/C (but not really needed).

  • Small kitchen with refrigerator, sink, and a minimum of cooking and eating utensils

  • Bathroom with a flush toilet (Seasonal)
