Join us for Mackinaw Rendezvous XVI on September 22-24 with a weekend of fun filled adventure in Mackinaw City and Mackinaw Island. Come up early on Friday to take part in the amazing programs happening at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping or explore Fort Michilimackinac or Historic Mill Creek State Parks. Program starts at 2pm on Friday, September 22. The next day we head over to the island for an amazing day of exploring after a rare boat trip that will take you under the Mackinaw Bridge.

Be sure to invite your Webelos so they can see all the fun that they will have in Boy Scouts!

We are also excited to share that we have a brand new On Island Adventure where Scouts and Venturers age 14 and older can spend the entire weekend on the island with access to different adventures. This is limited to the first 50 sign ups due to sleeping space limitations.
