This year’s Winter Campout will be held on Jan 13-15 at Camp Y-Noah in Clinton, OH, which is about a 45-minute drive just short of Canton. The Friday night activities will include our annual Chili Cookoff, with pizza provided for kids or those who choose not to partake in sampling our fine chili entries. For those of you who bring chili entries, please bring them in a Crock-Pot (I prefer using a disposable liner as well) and try to get there early enough to be sure to warm it through. Tribe chiefs – see if you can coordinate at least 1 entry per tribe to try to earn some bragging rights. We will try to start the chili and pizza festivities around 7 PM.
Christmas at Camp Y-Noah – Dads, here’s an excuse to get the decorations out of your yard before Easter!!! Bring them to the Winter Campout and decorate the outside of your cabin for judging on Saturday night. A specially designed patch will go to all residents of the most remarkable cabin that were involved in the decorating. Don’t forget your extension cords!
On Saturday, horseback riding, pony rides, archery, bb guns, floor hockey and crafts are the activities scheduled. If weather permits, Camp Y-Noah has two main hill areas that are perfect for sledding all day and NIGHT! Please be sure to bring your sleds, and NO METAL RUNNERS ARE ALLOWED ON SLEDS!
Saturday evening will conclude with our world-famous torch march, bonfire and tribe skits. Remember to bring your torch with wick (cotton rag) and have a tribe chant ready in order for the medicine man to light your tribe’s torches. Need tribe change ideas ask the Medicine Man TomaHawk. Dads, encourage your kids to come up with a skit for Saturday night, it is great if we can get each tribe up on stage. You can get some skit ideas here: http://www.ultimatecampresource.com/site/camp-activities/funny-camp-skits.page-1.html
Horse ride information: Horse rides will be $30 per rider and open to those who are 8 years of age or older up to 225 pounds. Dependent on the weather horse rides will be either trail rides or riding lessons in the indoor barn. For those of you who may have children under age 8, pony rides will be available for $10. Y-Noah needs prior commitment for the equestrian team; therefore, sign-ups will take place during the campout registration in the link below. There are a limited number of openings, if we need to make a cut-off it will be based on registration order.
Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. The deadline for signup is February ph. It’s shaping up to be a great time for all, so don’t wait until the last minute to sign up. Personally, when I first decided to go to Winter Campout my first year, I thought it would be a tougher campout with clothes changes, etc., but it has become a favorite of mine and my kids over the years! If you have any questions about campout, please do not hesitate to email me, provided below. Remember there is no bad weather just bad clothes.
Upon arrival at Camp Y-Noah registration will be performed by the long house, make sure to see me sometime to verify you arrived. After unloading your items your car will need to be returned to the main parking lot.
As a reminder overnight CVNSND events are for children K-8th grade.
Safety and creating memories are some of our main priorities. We will make ensure benches are cleared from the sledding hills. Please remind your children to start sledding downhill once their path is clear of other children. Lastly, knives are permitted to be brought by parents only. A previous campout we ended up with two children being cut to pocket knives. We do not want to lessen the fun but need to make sure children come back home safely.
This year we have access to 3 lodges, Kresge, Knight and Rousch, each with attached bathrooms. Additionally, we have access to the small cabins in the Lakeview, Pinegrove and Orchard Village, each village has 5 small cabins. The KYBO batch house near Pinegrove and Orchard is not operational, individuals at those cabins will need to take a little longer walk to the bathroom in Kresge or near the Lakeview Village. My intention is to use the 3 lodges for families comfortable bunking with other families. Use Lakeview cabins for families wishing to stay with 1or 2 other families. While using the Pinegrove and Orchard cabins for families that wish to bunk by themselves.
Now open – Deadline is Sunday, February 20th, 2020.
