Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has a rich history of providing scouts with excellent summer camp experience for over 85 years. From its opening in 1929 on the site of a small logging camp to the present operation of two camps and a High Adventure Base, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has grown and evolved over the years.   Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has served many generations of scouts from all across the Midwest.

Former staff members Matt Horbal and Ian Hopkins published a book about the history of Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan in 2014. Check out a copy of the book at our camp store or buy it here on Amazon.
