Troop Mackinaw, delivering positively memorable
Mackinac Island experiences since 2009. 

 

Who are we?

 

Kelly and Heather are two local moms determined to provide young scouts the opportunity to discover and explore Mackinac Island and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We have taken immense pride in providing an extraordinary Mackinac Island package for scouts over the past decade.  

 

We are one of the many small businesses that barely survived 2020. This was a devasting blow to this event that we have cherished for so long. We are immeasurably grateful to be offering this opportunity to scouts today thanks to your support. While we are operating at a fraction of the size we usually do, we have made some tough decisions to ensure that we offer a top-notch experience by partnering with businesses that share our values.

 

We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of everyone very seriously. Like you, we continue monitoring current events and plan accordingly.

 

It is our priority to provide a safe and fun-filled weekend for you and your scout! Please know that the trust you place in us is not taken lightly, and each decision is made with care. We are proud to be highly recommended by Girl Scouts, Troop Leaders, Girl Scout Councils, as well as the businesses that we work with and their communities.

 

Why choose Troop Mackinaw?

 

Troop Mackinaw is the complete Mackinac Island Scout package offering an affordable and quality experience that you can trust. Let us do the heavy lifting in planning a safe and fun-filled weekend for you and your scout(s)! We have reserved the lodging, perfected the plan, and negotiated the prices to make sure that you are getting the most bang for those hard-earned dollars. When traveling with your scout(s), you need to know that you have entrusted your trip scheduling to experienced professionals with your best interest in mind. The trust you place in us is not taken lightly, and each decision is made with care. Leave the worrying to us. But you do not have to take our word for it. We are proud to be highly recommended by Girl Scouts, Troop Leaders, Girl Scout Councils, as well as the businesses that we work with and their communities. We have listed just a few of the emails we have received about how easy, affordable, and fun their trip with Troop Mackinaw was on the About page.

What does the Mackinac Island Scout Package include?

 

This will look different from years past. We have made some tough decisions to ensure that we continue to offer a top-notch experience with businesses we trust. The 2022 Troop Mackinaw package includes accommodations for two nights at the Baymont Inn in Saint Ignace, continental breakfast each morning, tickets for round trip Mackinac Island ferry with convenient dockside parking, horse-drawn carriage tour, Fort Complete ticket, Mystery Spot ticket, pizza and pop voucher, nightly bonfire, and souvenir pin. Fort Complete Ticket includes admission to Fort Mackinac, Biddle House, Art Museum on Mackinac Island and Colonial Fort Michilimackinac, Old Point Lighthouse, and Historic Mill Creek in Mackinaw City. Your Mystery Spot ticket includes the mystery tour, miniature golf, and the wooded maze. AND the unique chance to meet, mingle and swap with Girl Scouts from all over Michigan and neighboring states.

 

Baymont Inn in St. Ignace offers newly renovated rooms, a heated indoor pool and hot tub, a game room, a beach with lawn games and a bonfire pit, and a convenient location to venture to local attractions. We have chosen this property because it has a local reputation for cleanliness, honest management, and fair pricing.

 

Your complete itinerary with instructions, locations, and directions will be emailed to the address on your confirmation two weeks before your scheduled arrival. This will include a list of included activities that you can attend before hotel check-in and after check-out.

 

We maintain the right to change the itinerary at any time with reason.

 

Who can attend?

 

Troop Mackinaw is an excellent experience for the whole troop or a parent and their scout. Rather than host large events, we are offering families and troops an affordable and stress-free opportunity to explore Mackinac Island.

 

If you have someone staying in your hotel room or at any scheduled activity that is not registered with Troop Mackinaw, you and your troop will be asked to leave without a refund.

 

Registration

Registration must be completed online by room (not troop) and paid in full via credit card. Each date listed has a limited number of rooms and will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration closes when we no longer have rooms available or on April 1st, whichever comes first.

 

Pricing is per person based on the number of people staying in your room.  Quad (4). Triple (3). Double (2).  Visit the registration tab for pricing and click on the calendar date you want. The calendar will also show how many rooms are available.  If the tab is not shown at the top, registration is closed. We cannot predict when the last room will be booked.

 

The maximum number of people you may assign to a room is four, no exceptions. Registrations with more adults than scouts aged 6-17 will not process. You must have one adult over age 17 in every room. It is important to list the contact information of an adult in the room.

 

The hotel makes every effort to keep rooms with the same troop numbers together. If you would like to be assigned near another troop or scout, it is best to register those rooms under the same troop number. You must put the correct troop number on your registration if you want to be assigned the same itinerary as the rest of your troop.  

 

All reservations are non-refundable. Refunds of any kind will not be given for any reason. Verify that you have input the information correctly before submitting your registration. There is a $25 fee for each modification or addition made before the close of registration. Reservation changes are not accepted after the close of registration. 

 

We are not responsible for lost, stolen, torn, or forgotten tickets, vouchers, and/or event wristbands.

 

A valid ID will be required at package pick-up. Your package will include everything for your troop. Any packet not signed for by 11 p.m. on Friday is considered a no-show and is canceled, with no exceptions.

 

Allergies.

You are responsible for monitoring food allergies and making alternate meal arrangements, if necessary. Gluten-free and vegetarian options will be available with your pizza voucher.

Transportation.

You are responsible for arranging your transportation to and from your hotel from your home, and the attractions that you choose to attend.
