Winter Campout will be at YMCA Camp Storer located in Jackson, MI which by far has the nicest lodging of any of the YMCA camps (Camp Storer Web Page). Each lodge has 4 bunk wings and a large common area with seating and a fire place. We are asking that you register as soon as possible so we can get an accurate headcount and secure a third lodge like last year. The cost per person is $80.00 for the weekend.
The Snow Snake Race is back for 2017 and it looks like we will have snow this year! Attached is the official snow snake regulations and build guidelines.
