Mini Mak Rookie Day

Mini Mak Rookie Days provide families an opportunity to sample a fun-filled camp day. Our experienced, enthusiastic staff take the boys through a jam-packed morning of activities while the directors show parents around camp and answer questions.

What to Expect:

Mini Mak’ers have the chance to try different activities to get a feel for how the Mah-Kee-Nac program works. They will also tour camp so they have a chance to see all of our facilities and meet campers and staff. In addition, they are treated to a great camp lunch in our dining hall. Mini Mak’ers then complete their action-packed day with a special event down at our waterfront. Activities may include Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Lacrosse, Tennis, Flag Football, Ropes Course, Archery, and more.
