Bear Information

Remember it's their home too...

Wildlife Policies

Tomahawk is home to many different animals native to the Midwest region, including the Black Bear. Seeing a Bear while at camp can enrich your experience, but its important to remember that they are wild animals and must be respected. It is mandatory that all Troops, Crews, Visitors, and Staff read and follow the information in the Black Bear Education Manual. It provides information on campsite precautions when camping with wildlife, how to act in an encounter with wildlife, and ways to ensure you have a safe week at camp.

The training in the Black Bear Manual is mandatory, groups will not be allowed past check-in until we have received a signed copy stating that you have completed the training.

Bear Boxes

Tomahawk provides a “Bear Box” in each campsite for units to store smell-ables. The “Bear Boxes” are old streetlight electrical boxes that stand about 6 feet tall, 3 feet wide and about two feet deep. It is recommended that each Scout brings a small plastic tote (approx. 6’’x5’’x9’’) that they can store personal hygiene items and personal snacks. Please note that while they will keep the large critters out, the “Bear Boxes” will not always keep the small critters out such as mice and insects
