MSR West Troop and Venturing Camps 2019

Event Details


TROOPS:  If  you are unsure if your Troop is in East Camp or West Camp, check the "2019 MSR Reserved Campsite Chart", found in the attachments section.  CLICK HERE IF YOUR TROOP IS IN EAST CAMP.

FAMILIES:  Scouts attending with their troop register with them, not by themselves online.  Contact your scoutmaster for more information.

PROVISIONAL CAMP?  If your scout is attending with another unit, have them register your scout online.  If attending with our Camp Unit, check the Campsite Chart to make sure you register for the correct "Camp" (East or West).  We want to make sure he or she signs up for the correct merit badges.

Each year, thousands of Scouts have an unforgettable summer at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation. Located in the North Woods of Wisconsin, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan consists of over 1,500 acres of beautiful forest, six spring-fed lakes, and a natural creek. The reservation is home to two full-service camps, a wilderness camp, a high adventure base, and a horse ranch.

Committed to excellence for over 85 years, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan is one of a handful of scout camps in the nation to receive a perfect accreditation rating from the BSA. Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan is located in Pearson, 25 miles northeast of Antigo, Wisconsin.

Has your unit signed up for a Summer Camp promotion yet?  If not, Schedule Your Camp Promotion Today!


Once your Troop or Crew has reserved a campsite, your Camp Coordinator will be added to our email list.  In December, he or she will be emailed instructions, deadlines, registration links, etc., so when registration opens, they can immediately begin to sign up scouts and adults from your unit.  Remember, Traditional Camp registrations must be completed by the unit's camp coordinator, only.

Scoutmasters and Crew Advisors:  Contact Debi at the council office if you are unsure who is listed as your camp coordinator, or if someone else has taken over that role (and you want to ensure she was informed).  Also make sure she has your information, so you can be kept "in the loop". Thank you.  


What if my scout cannot attend Traditional Camp the same week as his troop, or he wants to stay an additional week without his troop.  Can he?  

Yes!  During each of our six weeks of "Traditional" Camp, Scouts will be able to participate in the exact same week-long merit badge program, even if their own troop will not be there.  Sorry, this program is not available for adults.

Steps to Register your Scout as a provisional camper:

  1. If attending with the "Camp's Unit", check the "Reserved Sites" chart FIRST to make sure our unit is in West Camp your preferred week.  If it is East Camp, use that "event" link at the top of the page to sign up for the correct camp (two registration events for proper merit badge sign-up).

  2. Choose the week of camp your scout wants to attend. Then, make sure you choose Provisional Scout (not Scout) from the list.

  3. Registration Contact - You are the registration contact, but provide your Scout's UNIT information on this page.  Provide your (daytime) phone and email address.

  4. It then opens to the Attendee tab, where you provide your scout's name and unit leader information (name, email, phone).  This is also where you tell us who he will be "Attending With" (see below).

  5. Make sure to click on the "Check-out" tab to pay his fee and complete the registration.

Attending With:

  1. Another Unit: Some Scouts have friends in another unit, who will host them for the week. Make arrangements to stay with them, but pay the fees yourself.  Or, they can add your scout as a Provisional Camper to their registration.  Ask them about transportation to and from camp for your Scout.  If completing this registration yourself, list your scout's unit number.  You will be asked for your scout's unit leader information and the other troop's number.

  2. Camp's Unit (Ship 129):  We will provide a unit with 2-deep leadership for your Scout, so he can attend the week that works best for him.  If making this choice, list your scout's unit number and his unit leader's information.
