Memories of winter camping

By Patrick Fisher

The cold temperatures and snow have finally arrived after some unseasonably warm weather over this winter. It reminds me of the times that I went winter camping as a member of the Boy Scouts of America.

Yes, I know it's not usual for people to camp in winter, but my troop and others would do it. It wasn't just Boy Scouts; when I was in Webelos we did it, although it was for one weekend, and we stayed in cabins at Camp Wilderness, located near Park Rapids.

More than once as a Boy Scout, our troop stayed at Camp Wilderness for a weekend of winter camping.
