Winter Camping Rendezvous

The location has changed. Our event will now be held at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve in the gorgeous Driftless area of SW Wisconsin. The location change should put the event within a much more reasonable drive for almost all folks living in IL, IA, MN, and WI. 
• The campout is being held the same weekend as the Reserve's Winter Festival that takes place Saturday. Many presentations and hands on activities to be had, and it's a very family friendly event. 
• Some form of our "traditional" snowshoe hike and Saturday chili dump will still happen. More details to come on those specifics. 
We're very excited about keeping this gathering going, and are looking forward to blending the best of the old event with some new ideas in a new locale. 
Stay tuned as the event approaches for additional information.

Winter Camping Symposium

The purpose of the Winter Camping Symposium is to educate, collaborate and celebrate everything Winter! 

Winter campers and enthusiasts from around the region come together to share ideas and show off new creations which aid in the adventures of winter outdoor activities. From cold camping to hot camping, from kite sailing to building your own stove, from arctic adventures to sleeping in a quinzee in the backyard, from gear swaps to a chili feed, this event covers it all!

Join us for a long weekend of camaraderie and exploration!
