About Camp Blackhawk

Camp Blackhawk lies on the shores of Big Blue Lake and is rich in tradition, with roots dating back to the early days of Scouting. As one of the Owasippe Scout Reservation camps located in beautiful West Central Michigan, there are 4,800 acres to explore and enjoy. Blackhawk offers great programs in Scoutcraft, Ecology/Conservation, and Aquatics, along with Shooting Sports and Handicraft. A wide variety of merit badges are offered in each program area. Our Pathfinder First Year Camper Program is a popular activity for our new scouts, as well!

Looking out from the Dining Hall, one can see beautiful Big Blue Lake, with its sandy swimming beach. Its docks are set up to create the perfect swimming hole. Swim instruction takes place here while boating activities can be found down the beach. Blackhawk has 25 campsites located on hills overlooking Big Blue Lake. The sites have washstands, hot water showers, and flush toilets.

Meals are prepared by our food service staff and served cafeteria-style in Camp Blackhawk’s central dining hall. The Blackhawk staff entertains campers with exciting program during each meal.
