Winter Count Schedule (FEB. 9-15, 2020)
Our schedule is filling up! Still about 25% of the instructors need to add their classe bit this is what it looks like at this point.
We now have very set Onsite Check-in times and once Check-in is closed, you will not be able to enter camp.
Onsite Checkin Schedule: Saturday- 10am-6pm, Sunday: 9am-6pm, Monday-Friday 7:30am-6pm.
SATURDAY- 10 am: Our gates open! Please don't arrive before that.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration will close at 6 pm on Saturday and once registration closes, you will not be able to enter camp. Yes, we know that is written above but we want to make sure people don't miss it.
The first meal that will be served to registrants is Sunday dinner. Any meals being served before that are for Instructors.
SUNDAY: 12:00- 2:00: Blanket Fair. Instructors will set out blankets to promote their classes or trade goods. This will give you a chance to meet the instructors, understand their classes, and find out where they are camped or teaching their classes.
2:00-4:00 pm: Opening Fire/Announcements/Commercials- This is when we go over camp essentials as well as all instructors introduce themselves and what they do.
4 - 5:30 pm: Primitive Basics - These basics: fiber, fire, flint and knife, are taught by a myriad of instructors. It gives you a chance to learn some of the essential skills without interfering with your learning schedule during the week. All of these skills will also be taught during the week.
6:00pm: Dinner, the first meal served for registrants.
