Description

The 1st Annual Ontario Winter Camping Symposium - Brought to You By Snowtrekker Tents - is coming to the University of Waterloo Theatre of the Arts on Saturday November 25th 2017! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to enjoy Ontario's wilderness in the winter months? Want to learn more? Or are you an experienced winter camper who wants to try something new...hot tenting, cold tenting, snow shelter or crown land camping? Then the Ontario Winter Camping Symposium is for you! Visit us at: www.ontariowintercamping.ca

Speakers include:

Jim Baird - Winner of the History Channel's "Alone" challenge, Jim will be discussing his solo winter crossing of the Ungava Penninsula in Northern Quebec.
