Your service as the “Governor’s Honor Guard” and “Fort Mackinac Guides” at the Mackinac Island Scout Service Camp will be a unique experience in your Scouting life. This will be a type of service that few Scouts will ever experience. You will be among a select group that includes President Gerald R. Ford. (1929-MISSC 1st year)
Although the most important word is SERVICE, there will be ample opportunities for recreation: hiking, biking, sports, and just plain relaxing. This is a time to make new friends and to interact with people from other states and even nations. Remember that Mackinac Island is part of our Upper Peninsula, and an international tourist attraction.
You should find the answers you are looking for in the MISSC Manual. If not, please let us know.
You will need to wear a complete Scout uniform the day we go to Mackinac Island. Uniform of the day is: long pants, Scout web belt, Scout crew socks, short sleeve Scout shirt, (with MISSC patches sewn on), MISSC jacket, bolo and hat, black or brown shoes.
Only one carry-on bag will be allowed on Saturday for your lunch and misc items. We will be taking a bus to St. Ignace. Pick ups are:
• 8 a.m. Eastern Time at Immanuel Lutheran in Escanaba

Scouts not riding the bus are to meet us at the Mackinac Island Ferry Company (Star Line) in St. Ignace at 11 a.m. We will be taking the 12:30 p.m. ferry to Mackinac Island.
