Combining the traditions and skills of Paul Bunyan and all the great lumberjacks of the world, Scouts and Scouters are invited to attend Camp Rotary’s 2019 1st Annual Specialty Camp – Lumberjack: Backcountry Adventure!
In the late 1870s, lumbermen came to Clare County – and in 1886, Ed Pratt set up a lumber camp on the hill on the west end of the lake, in what is now Fort Scott campsite. To honor the logging history that surrounds Camp Rotary, there will be activities, challenges, and prizes galore based on skills only a true lumberjack possesses. Camp in your personal tents, take part in backcountry skills instruction and challenges, COOK ALL OF YOUR OWN MEALS IN THE PATROL STYLE COOKING METHOD, and get back to the basics that all good Scouts should know!
This event is only being offered for ONE WEEK in 2019 – so sharpen your axes and make plans to meet at Camp Rotary for this unique event!
