We traditionally host a small community gathering during the night of Winter Solstice. If you’re an experienced cold weather camper and the weather is cooperating, feel free to come join us. Bring your cold weather gear (expect rain, snow, and cold), instruments, food to share for the pot-luck, and a decent vehicle. Bring water because there are NO SERVICES other than portable toilets!
