Winter camping can be lots of fun if you know how to stay warm. Join us at camp as we show you how to plan for a safe and fun winter trip, practice fire building, try out gear, share tips and tricks for staying warm, and more. Come prepared to spend the afternoon outside in any conditions, pack a hearty lunch, and be ready to work for your warmth and feel like a burly mountain woman as we cut down and process our own fire wood.

This program will be held in Holland NY 14080

Once registration closes, we will send out a confirmation packet with additional information about this program including a packing list and instructions for your arrival. PLEASE take the time to read through this info packet as there will be important forms/waivers necessary for your participation as well as directions for travel and other valuable information. If you have any food allergies, dietary needs, or medical issues that we should be made aware of, please contact Erin Johnson at erin.johnson@gswny.org at least 3 days prior to the start of your program. Weather permitting, we will be spending the majority of our time outdoors. In addition to a bagged lunch, please plan to bring appropriate layers to stay comfortable in any potential weather conditions. please plan to wear layers and bring appropriate clothing for the conditions. If there is snow on the ground, you will want to have snowpants, winter boots, warm gloves and hat etc. WARM LAYERS are important for regulating your body heat while you move around outdoors. You may also want to bring extra socks. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at camp.
