Since 1967, Venturers, Explorers, Sea Scouts, Mariners and Senior Girl Scouts have gathered each August for the annual MAKAHIKI. Boy Scouts, minimum age 14, may also attend.
MAKAHIKI is a weekend full of competition, fun and friendship. Held on the shores of the glacial lakes of Northern Indiana, MAKAHIKI features Swimming, Canoeing, Row Boating and other fun water related activities.
Land based events include Marlinspike Seamanship, Drilling and Maneuvering, Tug-o-War and a new twist on Beach Volleyball.
Keeping with the Hawaiian theme, a Luau and Hawaiian Dress competition are also a part of the Weekend. The Friday night “Talent Show” goes beyond the normal campfire skit to showcase the creativity, talent and showmanship of today’s youth.
Scouts come from as far away as Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and even St Louis Missouri to attend MAKAHIKI.
Makahiki is held at Lucerne Park, 800 N. Park Ave., Warsaw, IN 46580
Cost is $20 per youth, $15 per leader. Additional $2 per person camping fee. Contact AWACMakahiki@gmail.com for more information and registration.
