“Troop Mackinaw was beyond my expectations. My daughter and I along with the rest of our troop had an amazing time! I wish it could have been longer. The event was well organized and planned.

“I loved the event! We choose to do it as a mother/daughter event. It was so delightful to see all of the mothers and daughters enjoying themselves.” Julie Lyons, Troop #70403

"Usually with large groups, people are scrambling all over and no one knows what is going on. Your event was unbelievably organized, tons of fun and truly one of the best events I have attended with my girls in the 8 years I have been in Girl Scouts. I hope everyone else has as much fun as me and my girls did. Thank you again, you both did a wonderful job." Karen Hartsell, Girl Scout Leader

“What a great value for the money. We were always busy with quality events and activities. Mackinaw welcomed us with signs everywhere. It was great to see all of the scouts wearing their vests and sashes. Very well run and organized. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Girls and parents were already talking about coming back next year before we even left.” Pamela Holmes, Troop #70370 and #30843
“Our troop and troop moms were very impressed with the organization of the event. The girls loved every part. Although I have been to the island, I had never done the carriage tour. That was beautiful! The buffet was like none other. The hotel was, well, truly grand! We liked roving the island and did not attend dinner or the evening entertainment so we could stay on the island longer. Comfortable hotel, fun water park. There were so many choices! Kelly and Heather oversaw a seamless day! The girls said it was their favorite outing ever!” Kim McCord, Troop 40826
“The girls and I had an awesome time. The hotel with the water park was super fun! Hotel staff nice. The Grand Hotel experience was awesome! The Pizza party later was fun. The Lumber Jack Show was super!!! Overall great time by all!!!! Even the Troop Organizer was very helpful and save the day for me!!!! Thank You!!!” Lisa Winters, Troop #70016

“What an awesome trip! Everything was well thought out and organized. There was the right mix of planned events and free time to keep the girls entertained, yet provide a bit of down time. We thought the bang for our buck was unbelievable. A nice added bonus was all the discounts retailers on the island were giving the group. Our girls and parents all had such a great time!!” Dora Bechtold, Troop #75099
“Thank you for including Mackinac State Historic Parks in your scout outing this year! The help the 100’s of scouts provided on improving trails at Historic Mill Creek was insurmountable.
