The Boy Scouts of America promote the outdoors and camping for children and young adults as a part of its camporee program.
Boy Scouts Camporee
A gathering of local Boy Scout troops come together seasonally (usually in the spring of fall) for organized camping adventures known as camporees. These camporees help teach boys the importance of teamwork and help sharpen their scouting skills. Of course, fun will be had with plenty of campfires, games and field events!
Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping is the only campground in the USA with a dedicated area specifically for scouting-type gatherings. Our "scout" area is isolated from the rest of the campground, but within a comfortable distance of our modern facilities.
Planning for Scouting Campouts
We can help you secure discount tickets to the Mackinac Island ferry and Jack Pine Lumber Jack shows, and help you plan outings to local historic parks including Fort Michilimackinac, Fort Mackinac and Mill Creek Historic Park.
We are experienced at hosting large multi-region rendezvous type gatherings as well as smaller groups that may only require a few sites. We understand what is important to you, the children or young adults in your charge and the concerns of parents.
The campground is situated on 200 acres of wooded lakefront property in Northern Michigan. Along with our dedicated Boy Scouts area, we have a large selection of both rustic and modern cabin rentals for you to pick from.
Located a short drive from downtown Mackinaw City, we are conveniently located near many local attractions. The Cheboygan River and Soo Locks are fairly close by. A little further and you'll find the Upper Peninsula attractions such as the Garlyn Zoo, Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point.
