Biboon-o-sheewin - Traditional Winter Camping

Traditional Winter Camping in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario, Canada

This introduction to traditional winter camping takes you back into Canada’s history. Like the early trappers and First Nations people we will travel by snowshoe and haul toboggans to a lakeside campsite. We will camp for two nights in a heated canvas walled-tent and cook our meals over a portable wood-burning stove and campfire. During the day we will explore the surrounding forests and lakes by snowshoe to discover the beauty of winter landscapes and how wildlife survives the cold and snow. At night under the stars and in your cozy tent you will listen for the howls of a distant wolf pack and hear stories of the land from your leaders who have many years of winter camping and travel experience. Biboon-o-sheewin is the aboriginal word for comfortably wintering in the forest using snowshoes, toboggans and wood-heated tents.
