Winter Camping Workshop coming February 23.

Feb 10, 2019 10:08AM ● By Editor

From the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources - February 10, 2019

Join the Tettegouche State Park Naturalist and other staff for a one-day introduction to winter camping. We will build traditional quinzhees, an insulated snowcave, for sleeping. Also covered will be topics such as cooking outdoors in the snow, tricks for staying dry and warm in the winter, and we will discuss and try out some methods of transporting gear through the snow.

This one day workshop will cover everything you need to know about camping in the winter. Participants who CHOOSE to do so will be able to sleep in the constructed quinzhees and try out the skills they have just learned. Come for just a day of winter fun and learning, or make a weekend out of it. You choose.

No bugs! No poisonous plants! Lots of fun!

Please register by calling or emailing the Park Naturalist.

There is no fee for this workshop.

Location :  Tettegouche State Park
Date:  Feb. 23, 2019
