The Michigan Crossroads Council’s Michigan International Camporee is the largest council-run multinational camp in North America. Once every four years, Scouts, leaders, and staff members from 20 or more countries come to Michigan for a week of home stays with Michigan troops and crews followed by a miniature World Jamboree.
From past Michigan International Camporee host troop leaders
“The kids continue to communicate with each other after the event for years”
“Their favorite Scouting experience, more so than Philmont or other high adventure bases”
The next Michigan International Camporee will be held from July 19 to July 26, 2020, at Rota-Kiwan Scout Reservation, 6278 Texas Drive, Kalamazoo, Michigan. Home Stay Week for MIC 2020 international contingents with Michigan host unit families will be July 11/12 to July 19, 2020. MIC 2016 international contingent leaders from Canada, Curacao, Ghana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Libya, Mexico (Queretaro), Mexico (Tabasco), Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom (Cumbria), and United Kingdom (Essex) have already made commitments to return with contingents in 2020.
