Webelos (Akela) Camp

Event Details

Attention all Cub Scout Packs and families! 

If your scout will be a Webelos I or Webelos II this summer or fall, come to Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan to watch them experience the full Boy Scout program.  Participate in activities designed just for your scouts who will have the chance to scale our climbing wall, swim and sail in Lake Killian, and enjoy all that Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan has to offer.

This 4-day, 3-night experience  gives your Webelos the opportunity to gain a sense of independence, have fun in the great outdoors, and even earn advancements.  We are one of the premiere Boy Scout camps in the country, and attending camp keeps Boy Scouts engaged in the program.

We encourage Webelos and adults from the same Pack or Den to attend the same session when possible, so they can share this wonderful experience at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation.  But whether you attend as a Pack, Den, or family, you and your Webelos Scout will be able to participate in these life-changing opportunities together. Best of all, spend the 4th of July week camping with your Webelos and see the famous Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan 4th of July parade!

NEW BSA WEBELOS CAMPING REQUIREMENT:  The BSA released the new camping guidelines for Webelos (found in current Safe Guide to Scouting). The most important change to note is that ALL Webelos need an adult partner for any overnight camping. This means each of your Webelos would need a parent or guardian with them to attend Akela (Webelos Resident) Camp.


The Basics

Who:  Webelos and Adults
What: 4-day, 3-night camping experience full of great opportunities for fun and advancement
Where: Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation, W6500 Spring Lake Road, Pearson, WI
Two identical sessions to choose from: June 30-July 3 (2pm-9:30am), or July 3-6 (2pm-9:30am)
SLEEPING:  Each campsite has pre-assembled platformed tents (2 cots in each tent).  You may also bring your own.  Contact the East Camp Director if you have questions about the size of tent allowed, or to make sure you are in a campsite that will allow you set up a larger family-sized tent.

Important Information

Webelos Resident Camp has all of our East Camp reserved.  Since you are required to provide your Pack information when you register, we will automatically put your Pack’s Webelos and Adult Partners in the same campsites.

You will get to eat with your Webelos in our East Camp Dining Hall, and participate in the mealtime activities with our camp staff. They provide a wonderful, age appropriate program, with a few Advancement opportunities that relate to the Webelos program.  Even better, your Webelos will have access to the full resources of a world-class Boy Scout Camp.  Sign up today!
