One of the nation’s oldest and most premier summer events. Bay Jammer is open to Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, Explorers, Sea Scouts, Senior Girl Scouts, Ambassador Scouts, and Mariner Ships. Participants must be 13 years old to attend. It is series of competitions that build on the values of Scouting, encourages teamwork among youth, tests one’s Scouting knowledge and perseverance, and even includes a dance!
August 21-23: Dadventure is a Go at Bear Paw
Adjusted to the health and safety protocols, Dadventure still packs lots of fun into a “tiny” weekend. Campers will be groups to move from event to event. Learn about chemical reactions, gaze at the stars and make your own amazing slime! Also included are some of our tried and true favorites: branding iron, Akela Warrior Challenge and 2 person saw. Many of the activities count towards Advancement Requirements. Get the early bird discount with your registration before Aug. 1.
August 23: Scout Day at the U.P State Fair in Escanaba
Scouters get free admission when in uniform! Units can put on a Scouting activity in the Big Tent area to showcase Scouting to the UP.
August 28-30: Kon Wapos Lodge Gathering at Bear Paw Scout Camp
Ordeal candidates will complete their Ordeal and join our brotherhood, as well as Ordeal members sealing their membership by becoming Brotherhood members. Those who were selected to be Vigil honor members will also hold their vigil on these weekends. For those not doing their Ordeal, the weekend will be filled with service projects to get our camps ready for the fall, as well as fellowship for everyone. Another focus is the election of the new Lodge Leadership.
