Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation
Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Storm Updates
From Scout Executive/CEO Nick Roberts:
I am on-the-ground at camp with our ranger and leadership team. A local logging company and our camp staff are working to get roads opened and assisting our remaining week 4 campers on departing for home safely.
Camp suffered substantial damage to many of our facilities and campsites. I have decided that we cannot safely operate camp the remainder of the summer.
While I am disappointed to report this early closing; the safety of our Scouts, leaders, and staff is our first priority.

This morning our camp ranger and his team are out assessing the damage and preparing a plan for clean up. We know that you may be wondering how you can help. We ask that you refrain from heading to camp at this time to allow the team to put together the plan. We will let you know when your assistance is needed.
We will also communicate with troops scheduled to attend week 5 via email later this afternoon.

Tonight, Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation sustained heavy damage from a severe thunderstorm. All youth, adults, and staff are accounted for and are under a roof for the night. One injury occurred and is being treated on-site. Camp is currently not accessible due to downed trees. After an assessment during daylight hours, an update will be posted. Thank you to the camp staff and adult leaders for following emergency procedures and ensuring the safety of our Scouts.
