Troop 28 joins the thousands of Scouts from the Northeast Illinois Council who spend a week at the Makajawan Scout Reservation.
Camp Makajawan is located in 1,560 acres of pristine forest near Pearson, in north-central Wisconsin , about 25 miles northeast of Antigo. The camp comprises two lakes, a natural creek, numerous trails, two full-service Scout camps, a wilderness camp, an outdoor climbing wall, a horse ranch and a family camping area (among many other things).
Makajawan’s programs make it quite simple for a motivated Scout to fulfill virtually all of the requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Scout Class ranks through the Trailblazer program. Scouts can earn rank advancement and numerous merit badges at the nature lodge, the waterfront, the Scoutcraft area and the rifle range. It’s a particularly good time to earn the Environmental Science, Swimming and Lifesaving merit badges, which can be difficult to work on during the long Glencoe winter! Adult Scouters supervise all activities, assisted by qualified Varsity Scouts and senior Boy Scouts.
Troop 28 usually prepares its own breakfasts and dinners in its campsite, but eats lunch (and a few dinners) in the camp mess hall.
We also try to take a day to do some whitewater rafting together on the nearby Wolf River .

Medical forms are needed by all who attend camp. Class 1 is required for everyone, and Class 2 is required once every 36 months for all participants under 40 years of age. Class 3 must be filled out annually by adults 40 years of age or older.
Note: (For Class 2 only) If the camper has had a medical evaluation (physical examination) within the last 36 months, a copy of the results of this examination must be attached to the health history for all participants in a camping experience lasting longer than 72 consecutive hours.
If a copy is not available, a physical examination must be scheduled by a licensed healthcare practitioner. This medical evaluation (physical examination) also is required if the scout is currently under medical care, takes a prescribed medication, requires a medically prescribed diet, has had an injury or illness during the past 6 months that limited activity for a week or more, has ever lost consciousness during physical activity, or has suffered a concussion from a head injury.
A Camp Prescription Medical Form and Special Diet Form are also available.
