The next Michigan International Camporee has been postponed from 2020 to 2022 to give the MIC planning team time to make changes in the two week MIC experience to satisfy the National BSA Policy that is new since MIC 2016 that home hosting cannot be part of an official Scouting event

PROGRESS IN DEVELOPING PLANS FOR MIC HOSTING WEEK THAT DO NOT INVOLVE HOME STAYS IN PRIVATE HOMES FOR MEMBERS OF INTERNATIONAL CONTINGENTS

At the January 2019 MIC Planning Meeting, the decision was made to retain MIC hosting week but to have international contingents spend overnights during hosting week in facilities that are located near the communities where their host troops and crews meet but are not private homes. 

PROPOSED CHANGES IN PRE-MIC COMMUNICATIONS

At previous MICs, the pre-MIC communication between the different contingents that made up a campsite troop was between the adult leaders of the contingents. At the January, 2019, MIC planning meeting, the decision was made that for MIC 2022 this will be expanded to include JOTA/JOTI/skype type communications between the members of each international patrol monitored by adult troop leaders.  For MIC youth participants, the two part MIC experience of hosting week and camp week will become a three part experience of pre-MIC communications, MIC hosting week, and MIC camp week.

DRAFT OF NEW PLAN FOR THREE PART MIC EXPERIENCE

At the March 2019 MIC Planning Meeting, a detailed draft was presented of how this new plan would work and how it would satisfy BSA's Guide to Safe Scouting.  Please follow the links below to to the most recent versions of three documents that explain the current proposal.

PROPOSED CHANGE IN THE MIC EXPERIENCE - This is a detailed plan and schedule for pre-MIC communications, MIC 2022 hosting week, and the transition between  MIC 2022 hosting week and MIC 2022 camp week.   MIC 2022 camp week will be very similar to MIC 2016 camp week as described in detail in the MIC 2016 Participant Handbook. - 10/7/2019 revision

MIC 2022 PLANNING MEETING SCHEDULE

MIC 2022 Planning Meetings will be held on the third Sunday of the month at 2 pm on months we have meetings scheduled, initially at the Lansing Scout Office,137 S. Marketplace Blvd, Lansing MI with teleconferencing available and then moving to a larger location as more staff and host unit leaders are recruited. We will meet every other month for the next year and then slide into monthly meetings in the fall of 2019.  Please contact us to receive detailed information on participating in meetings by teleconference 

LOCATION FOR FUTURE MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL CAMPOREES - Northwoods Scout Reservation, the site of the first 6 MICs has been closed.  A camp needed to be located that has the Facilities and Equipment necessary to run an MIC and is available during the time period required. 

Rota-Kiwan Scout Reservation, had been selected as the site of the 2022 Michigan International Camporee. In October, 2019 the Planning Committee received word that it was scheduled for closing before MIC2020.  The Planning Committee is now in the process of locating another camp for MIC2020.

DECISIONS THAT ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BEING MADE 

1. DETERMINING THE MIC 2022 ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

A few key volunteers each filled a number of important behind-the-scenes positions necessary to plan and organize MIC 2016.  We need to make sure each of these positions is filled with a different qualified volunteer for future MICs.  The first step in this process is to develop an ideal MIC staff organizational chart with two deep leadership in all key positions.  A team of MIC 2016 volunteers developed the proposed organizational structure for different staff areas you can reach by following the links below.  Some of those position descriptions will need to be adjusted to reflect the new structure of MIC in 2022.

2. FILLING KEY MIC 2022 POSITIONS

We have begun the process of filling key MIC 2022 positions.   We have an immediate need to fill the DEPUTY CAMPOREE CHIEF position, key positions in ADMINISTRATION including ASSISTANT CAMPOREE CHIEF FOR ADMINISTRATION, key positions in DAILY PROGRAM including ASSISTANT CAMPOREE CHIEF FOR DAILY PROGRAM, and all the positions in PROMOTION/RECRUITING to keep MIC 2022 planning on schedule. Please let us know of there are any positions there that you are interested in filling.
