Winter Camping 2020
21-23 February 2020 Band of Brothers winter camping event.
“Winter camping? What? Why?”
WHY NOT! No bugs, no crowds. Come join Band of Brothers Pro Staffer Michael Hedtke, a lifelong Winter Camping enthusiast and Winter Camper Trevor Banks for a fun filled weekend of heated tents, snowshoeing, pristine wilderness and relaxing around the campfire.
We will be camping The Boundary Waters Canoe area near Ely Minnesota. Destination is slim lake which is about 30 minutes from Ely Minnesota. Destination details will be provided. The group will meet up in Ely Minnesota on Friday, February 21 and caravan to the step off point. Our camp will be a short snowshoe hike from the parking area to the lake. We will be staying in canvas tents design for a Winter camping with wood-stoves! The weekend is going to be based around relaxation and socializing. We can also spend time discussing and practicing other topics related to a Winter camping such as but not limited to Bushcraft, traditional winter travel, fire skills and winter shelters.
There will also be some fishing available however guests will be responsible for their own fishing equipment. We will have an ice auger with the group. You probably already have the gear required for winter camping if you live in Minnesota. We will have some snowshoes and extra sleeping bags available. A complete equipment list and itinerary will be sent to successful applicants. Meals will be provided, if you have any dietary restrictions please let us know ahead of time. Looking forward to seeing you on the trail!
