AY Honors/Winter Camping
Most people do all their camping in the spring, summer, and fall. But you can camp in the winter too if you know how. Winter camping will open the door to a different experience as you drink in God's creation and enjoy the solitude. A campfire never felt better. Also, no bugs, and the bears are asleep!
