Summer Camp News – Hiawatha Updates: February 26, 2021 Guide
The snow may be deep as it covers an iced-over Bunting Lake. Camp Hiawatha never sleeps. Once all the frozen stuff melts, the water-based adventures will begin with Hiawatha as its base. Among the activities: sea kayaking adventure along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, a hike to see the five largest waterfalls in Munising. For bikers: a bike hike along the Historic Bay de Noc Grand Island Trail or Valley Spur Alger County’s premier bike trail, or an excursion to try Munising’s newest bike park. <Continued> Bring your bike to camp and don’t forget your helmet.) Back on the waters, take a fishing trip to Autrain Baisin or Trout Lake, or canoe on the Indian River.
There will be a new Ecology Area, including a new building. All camp trails are being updated and resigned for easier hiking. And, if your unit is looking for some service time, there are camp projects available.
From Erick Kestila, camp director: “For your troops or crews that would like a great High Adventure Experience. We at Camp Hiawatha can help you plan a fun an exciting week. Let Hiawatha be your base camp and you can do day trips, overnight trips or plan a whole week trip starting at Camp Hiawatha.”
