We've attended in -5 degree weather, 25, and 65--- it's always a good family fun time with events adjusted for the weather.
Bunking The Senior Lodge and Cabin #7 were reserved at Jewell. Both are heated and also have fireplaces for ambiance! Bunks with mattresses are provided. If demand exceeds the current pack reservation, we will try to secure another cabin if available. Specific cabin assignments will be made just prior to the event and are based on registration numbers, rank and other family considerations.
