Winter Camping & Staying Safe

As we see our first snow fall of the year here in Gamehaven Council we have reached out to several organizations in order to get guidance on winter camping and the building of shelters. We reached out to the Olmsted County Public Health, BSA National Program Office and Northern Tier. No one was able to give us much hard direction, but all made recommendations as best practices for building shelters and sleeping in them.

  1. 3ft between those sleeping.

  2. Sleep all campers head to foot

  3. Bunkmates stay together if trip is over multiple nights

Please take these recommendations into account when planning your events.

Thank you
