Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation’s High Adventure Base will offer eleven different adventures in 2019, for your troop or crew.  Whether you are interested in taking in the vistas on foot at one of our four backpacking destinations, paddling through the cool water on our kayaking or canoe treks, or relaxing on sailboats in Lake Superior, there is sure to be a trek for you!  We’re even adding a cycling trek, so you can traverse the beautiful countryside of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula!  If you don’t see a trek that you like, contact the camp staff about a custom itinerary.

We offer both in-camp day trips (that are designed to compliment your stay at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan) or adventures outside of the regular camp program. We are proud to be a Nationally Accredited High Adventure Base.
