Camp Hinds offers a beautiful setting for your OKPIK adventure. Located on Panther Pond in Raymond, Maine, Camp Hinds is ideally suited for this exciting winter camping program. Your trip begins at our lodge, where you will spend Friday night before heading out on the trail.
Four sessions: January 12-14, January 26-28, February 2-4, February 9-11
OKPIK Maine is designed to teach Scouts the basics of winter camping. In this program, crews will pack their winter gear onto sleds (or "pulks") and head out into the wilderness to spend 1-2 nights. Scouts will learn how to set up a winter campsite, how to build snow shelters and how to cook meals at low temperatures. In addition, they will get to try out a full array of winter activities.
OKPIK Maine offers:
Learn to build your own quinzee or thermal shelter out of snow and natural materials. A quinzee will remain at a cozy 25 degrees even when the temperature outside is far below zero!
The original method of travel in the Maine woods, snow-shoeing is still a fun and efficient way to get where you need to go in the snow! Miles of scenic trails allow all abilities to enjoy Maine's beauty.
Our trail meals are designed for ease of preparation and cleanup using backpacking stoves. An abundant variety of high calorie will keep you warm all weekend!
