National Cold Weather Camping Headquarters – Northern Tier is open for reservations.

Posted on 25 August 2010 by admin

Experience the beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in the winter. A silent snow covered landscape, with no bugs or people around you.

 At OKPIK you can:
–  Cross country ski and snowshoe in the back country.
–  Camp comfortably in below zero temperatures.
–  Experience the Introduction to Dog Sledding program offered to Scouts and Venturers attending OKPIK.
–  Do Musher Camp and Dog Sled Treks (our more extensive dog sled programs) with your older youth.
 
Also Webelos with their adult partner can participate in most winter activities but get to “camp” indoors. 
 
Council’s should also consider sending staff or volunteers to the OKPIK: Cold Weather Leader Training, January 4 – 9, 2011. This is the perfect training for your Council to learn how to put on Local Council Cold Weather Camping events safely from the experts.
 
 Reservations can be made during business hours 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Visit www.ntier.org to obtain a reservation form, view an OKPIK video, check the OKPIK availability chart, and learn more information about the summer, autumn, and winter programs we have to offer.
