Winter Camping Symposium

The 19th Annual Winter Camping Symposium

Thursday, October 26th – Sunday, October 29th 2017

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!
