TOP 10 REASONS TO GO WINTER CAMPING
10. STAYING WARM IS EASY
Our gear, training and staff make staying warm easy. You don’t need to have all the right stuff, because we have you covered. Everything from sub-zero rated mummy bags to mittens to wool socks.
09. NO BUGS
There's no scrambling to zip up the tent door to keep the mosquitos out during the winter. They've settled down for a long winter's nap. Sit back and relax with confidence the bugs won’t be biting.
08. LEARN TO CAMP OUTSIDE 12 MONTHS OF THE YEAR
If you only camp in 30+ degree weather you’re missing 1/3 of the camping experience. Let us show you what you’re missing.
07. BRAGGING RIGHTS
Winter camping is unique, and it can be challenging to do on your own. Earn the Zero Hero award. Co-workers and classmates will be enthralled with your tails of adventure on Monday morning.
06. STARRY NIGHTS
The stars are so much more vibrant in the wintertime. With earlier sunsets you’ll have more time to view the stars. Our staff with do a mini star gazing instruction during night hikes.
05. GREAT SLEEP
Winter camping is about comfort. You can bring more gear with you in a sled than you can in a backpack. Bring some extra cushion to sleep on-you’ve got the space. Zip into your cozy mummy bag and enjoy it.
04. TRAIL? WHAT TRAIL?
In deep snow you can make your own trails without hurting the ground beneath. Walk on water and explore more places and camp in more remote spaces.
03. NEW VIEWS
You thought you knew what our camps looked like, but then you get to camp and it is a whole new world. You can see farther and a blanket of snow gives these familiar areas a new personality.
02. UNIQUE PROGRAMS
There are just some things you can’t do in the summer: Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Tubing and more. Build a table out of snow and then cook on it.
01. WINTER SILIENCE
A forest seems at rest under a blanket of snow. The structure of snowflakes absorb sound, so snow actually does make it a bit quieter outside.
