This year’s Winter Campout will be held on January 19-21 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 are able to 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.

On Saturday, horseback riding, pony rides, archery, bb guns, floor hockey and crafts are some of the activities that are being 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!
Horse ride information: This year, they are most likely performing hour-long horse riding lessons in lieu of trail rides. These would take place in the indoor barn. Horse rides will be $20 per rider and open to those who are 8 years of age or older. For those of you who may have children under age 8, pony rides will be available for $5. Sign-ups will take place during the campout registration Friday evening. If there is further information on horse rides prior to the campout, I will advise in one of the pre-campout reminder emails.

Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. The deadline for signup is January 13th. 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.

Upon arrival at Camp Y-Noah, all campers must check in at the main lodge Friday evening. After check-in, you can drive to your assigned cabin.
