Camp Miakonda is a multi-use facility which serves both the Boy Scouts of America and the community at large year round. 

Reserving facilities at Camp Miakonda is coordinated through the Camp Program Secretary at the Council office.  The Erie Shores Council Camp Program Secretary is the official registrar for all facilities at Camp Miakonda.  The official Camp Reservations Spreadsheet is the only record book for reserving sites/facilities.

Unless a site/facility is officially reserved through the Council Camping Secretary, including payment of the required site/facility deposit, the site/facility should be considered as NOT reserved.  All Scouting units and non-Scouting groups should contact the Council Camping Secretary directly to reserve a site/facility at Camp Miakonda.  Erie Shores Council Scouting units will have precedent (1st) over Out of Council Scouting Units (including Girl Scouts)(2nd), and non-Scouting units (3rd) for reservations.

All reservations for Camp Miakonda facilities must have ½ the rental fee paid as deposit at the time the reservation is made with the balance paid in full three (3) weeks prior to the event.  Reservations not paid at that time are considered unreserved and available.    If under 3 weeks, all fees must be paid at the time the reservation is made.  Reservations not paid in full on the designated due date are subject to immediate cancellation.  A cabin/facility is not considered reserved until payment is made.  You will be sent a permit when your fees are paid in full in advance of your reservation.  This permit must be shown for cabin/site access and to check into camp.  Cabin keys will be issued beginning at 6:30 PM once all vehicles are cleared from camp.

Rental deposits for cancelled reservations – regardless of the cause - will be returned, less a processing fee equal to fifteen percent (15%) of the full facility rental fee.  There shall be no exceptions to this policy.

Facilities on “Closed Weekends” for special events must be reserved six weeks prior to the activity.  Cabins not designated and paid by six weeks in advance of activity date will be available for reservation by other groups.   

Special Events, Closed Weekends

Only the Council Camping Committee has the authority to reserve Camp Miakonda for the exclusive use of a district or committee, or a special event or activity.  Historically, a period of exclusive use has come to be known as a “closed weekend.”  A closed weekend includes the use of the Council Lodge, Chapel, Parade Field and Fire Rings.
A district or committee which would like to have exclusive use of Camp Miakonda for an event or activity must submit a written request for a closed weekend to the Council Camping Secretary at least three months in advance of the first day of an event or activity.  The Camping Secretary shall immediately forward a copy of the written request to the Council Camping Committee Chair for a decision at the next Council Camping Committee meeting.

All requests need to consider Camp’s fiscal responsibilities.  A Closed Weekend includes the use of the Council Lodge, Chapel, Parade/Activity Field, and Fire Rings.
Once a request for a closed weekend has been approved, reservations for camp facilities during the closed weekend will be accepted from only those individuals, units, or groups which fall with the scope or purpose of the closed weekend.
Camp facilities on closed weekends which are not reserved and all fees fully paid six weeks prior to the activity will be immediately available for reservation by other groups within Scouting and by non-Scouting organizations.

A written request for a ‘Closed’ weekend utilizes the ‘guaranteed occupancy’ option.  The party making the request must guarantee 80% of all facilities will be reserved and fees fully paid no less than six (6) weeks prior to the first day of the event, or the party will pay the current Camp Miakonda 80% occupancy rate no less than six (6) weeks prior to the first day of the event.  As of April 2010, the 80% Guaranteed Occupancy rate is $1,300/Scout, $1800/non-Scout, less any paid cabin rental fees.  This amount is subject to change. 
In the event the party (district or committee) does not make good on their guarantee, they shall not be granted the privilege to use the option for a period of not less than 18 months.

Weekend Program

It is requested that every unit/group staying in camp, completes a Good Turn project for the betterment of camp.   
Camp Miakonda is a true Scouting and community treasure.  For over ninety years Camp Miakonda has enriched the lives of the youth it serves.  With our use of this wonderful camp comes the responsibility to maintain the camp’s grounds and facilities so that Camp Miakonda can continue its mission of service for generations to come.
As part of the reservation policy, once in camp you are asked to contact the Camp Ranger for an age-appropriate service project to benefit the camp.  Not only will the service project benefit the camp, it affords us all an opportunity to practice the Boy Scout Slogan:  Do a Good Turn Daily.

COPE

All reservations and fees for the COPE Course will be reserved through the Miakonda Operations Director, who shall provide a list of who and when will be using the Course to the Miakonda Camp/Program Secretary at least two weeks in advance.  Should the group using the COPE course wish to reserve a cabin or tent, it must be reserved and paid with the Camp Secretary.

Schedules

A list of the cabins and facilities being used will be provided to:

  • Miakonda Ranger
  • Weekend Campmaster
  • Operations Director
  • Scout Executive

by Tuesday preceding the weekend.

This list will include:  Cabin or Facility Being Used, Unit# or Group Using, Leader name and phone, permit # and date paid for. 
Any unit or group arriving at camp during check in that has not made previous reservations, and does not have a permit, nor has paid the rental fee, may do so by paying the Campmaster, Ranger, Operations Director, or at the Scout Shop (9:30 AM to 12 Noon Saturdays).  They will issue a permit at that time.  A $25 surcharge late fee will be required by units not paying their cabin/site fees until check in.
