If you've ever wanted to try out winter camping but have not, this will be an easy winter camping event.
Walk in tenting at a designated camp ground means you can bring lots of stuff to try out if you want and not worry about the hassle of having of carrying things in. Basically this is a getaway weekend.
Plan is for an easy weekend mostly with activities around the campfire and cooking. if there is time, maybe a short hike/snowshoe. Maybe muck around with some basic bushcraft, eat lots, sleep overnight and be merry.

NOTES:
- Current forecast as at 2 Nov 2020 is for snow and cold-ish temperatures
- We'll be doing individual tenting unless you're from the same cohort. For meals, it will be individual but you're welcome to bring something to share if you'd like.
- If you'd like to explore the area, bring your own snowshoes/skis.
- Waterproof layers
- Bring a cord of wood for the fire pit to share
