Troop Mackinaw remains scheduled for the weekend of September 25, 2020! 

Thank you for choosing Troop Mackinaw. Your support during this challenging year is very much appreciated.

 

We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of everyone very seriously. Like you, we're closely monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic and are making adjustments accordingly. In response to the pandemic Troop Mackinaw will be different from what you’ve experienced during past visits. Please read the itinerary and information that was emailed on September 13th completely and carefully.

We understand that choosing to travel is a personal decision for each family. You will not be required to attend as a troop and can do so by the rooms that you assigned. You are encouraged to use your package to your comfort level. 

 

This has been a stressful year for everyone. In the spring we offered the opportunity to cancel or move forward with reservations in September knowing that refunds would not be offered. Please refrain from sending unkind and threatening emails requesting refunds. Refunds are not available for any reason and we are not able to reschedule. Funds are exhausted and the future of this event is bleak. We have done our very best to do right by the scouts that we've been proud to host for over a decade.

Any troop that has not scheduled a pick-up time by 7 pm on Thursday, September 18 is considered canceled, no exceptions. Once everyone has confirmed their intention to attend by scheduling a pick-up time then we can assign hotels and carriage tour times and email those to you.

A valid ID will be required at package pick-up. Your package will include everything for your troop. Any package not signed for by 9 p.m. on Friday evening is considered a no-show and is canceled, no exceptions.

Troop Mackinaw registration has been closed for some time. All reservations are final. Discounts for unused package portions or refunds of any kind will not be given for any reason. We are not responsible for lost, stolen, torn, or forgotten tickets, vouchers, and/or Troop Mackinaw wristbands. Refunds are not given for any reason. 

You are accountable for following the itinerary. We are not responsible for misinformation given by anyone outside of Troop Mackinaw staff.  HK Events maintains the right to change itinerary at any time.

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

Manners, Please. Please discuss expected behavior and review the Girl Scout Law with scouts and chaperones prior to arrival. Dress and act appropriately. Say please, thank you, & excuse me. Wait for your turn. Clean up after yourself. Adults should be setting an example of honesty and kindness for all scouts. *  During your visit to our area please recognize the burden of responsibility on the employees to protect, oversee, and enforce the added precautions put in place to protect the health and safety of you, other visitors, and the staff. 2020 has been a challenging time for everyone including tourism-related businesses struggling to stay open despite supply and staff shortages while continuing to implement and enforce additional health and safety precautions. Please remember to pack your patience, compassion, and understanding.    

Per the Governor of Michigan’s Executive Order, social distancing must be practiced, and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. We are a third-party booking agent; any additional safety precautions and enforcement are the responsibility of the hotel and any attractions that you choose to attend.
