It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a lot of people, including many Scouts from across Canada who enjoy freezing themselves out in nature in the cold winter months.
The first experience of winter camping that I had was when I was only 11 years old. My parents wrapped me in so many layers and packed so much equipment to ensure I wasn’t cold. In the end, I didn’t use half the gear I packed and it helped me learn for next time the most important things to pack… one of them being a sled, which is essential in order to have the most amount of fun on a snowy hill. Our tent was buried in snow and the next morning we had to shovel it out.
While shovelling snow was a great exercise for us, some of the best activities to do in the snow are snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tubing, sledding, or having a snowman building contest. While it may be untraditional, during camping trips our Scouting Group loves to take photos. We do photography courses before our trips, get our cameras ready and go out for a couple of hours and shoot some pictures. Pictures are amazing was of recreating memories and it is a great hobby to get into. Whatever you and your friends decide to do in the snow, I guarantee you it will create long-lasting memories, because for me it sure did.
Lastly, the best thing to do while camping in the snow is definitely staying warm. While it may be hard to stay warm in a freezing snow fort, you can make it fun to stay warm. Keeping everyone active by having running races or playing team building games in the snow. Drinking hot chocolate or coffee can keep anyone nice and toasty on the inside, and don’t forget to bring some firewood! Just because it is snowing doesn’t mean you can’t have a fire! Something I’ve learned while camping, especially in snow, is to bring a wheelbarrow to make the fire in.
Getting outside across our amazing country is a great way to celebrate winter, so get out there and have an adventure!
While winter is the most wonderful time of the year, it is also the coldest, so make sure you and your friends are all bundled up for the cold. Getting outside across our amazing country is a great way to celebrate winter, so get out there and have an adventure!
