Winter camp 2016 starts 1/29!

For those of you who were on the fence, the weather looks perfect, join us at the winter camp! We already have around 100 people signed up, but there is plenty of room still available. The signup form is here

If you’ve never been to a campout, here are some useful links:

I spoke to the camp director at Anokijig yesterday and the ice is in great shape for all our ice activities, and they have more snow than we do so the tube hill is open as well.  This year, bowling and swimming are included in your camp registration fee.  Please note that similar to last year, we will NOT be providing dinner at the camp on Saturday night.  Please plan to make your own arrangements for dinner on Saturday night.  In the link above you will find a document with several restaurant recommendations which are close to both the bowling and swimming activities.

Please note that this year we are making helmets MANDATORY for all kids on the tubing hill.  Even a basic bike helmet is fine, but please plan accordingly to make sure we keep the kids as safe as possible on the tube hill.  Also, all kid’s tubing activities MUST be monitored by at least one dad.  Please do not send your kids to the tube hill without supervision.

2016 Winter Camp – Jan 29 – 31

Mighty Fox Nation, please save the date for this year’s Winter Camp Out being held January 29 through 31 at Camp Anokijig.

Last year was an awesome time, barring a snowy drive home on Sunday. The kids loved the snow though – it made Camp Anokijig even more a magical place than it already is.

Expect a weekend of tubing, sleigh rides, broom ball, frozen milk-jug curling, ice skating, ice fishing, arts and crafts, bowling, and swimming. I think the dads had as much fun in the curling competition as the kids did. Hopefully we will be able to welcome our favorite Ojibwe Indian to camp, Brian Bearshadow and his wife Carla.  As always, campfire fun and winter adventure is at the core of our winter campout experience.  We’re still trying to solidify plans for Saturday night’s dinner, but there may be an additional function that we add this year. Stay posted for more information.

For those new members who have never experienced a winter camp out, it is a truly unique experience and a great mix of indoor fun and outdoor winter activities.
