Presentations

 Bug-Proofing Your Camp
Quetico - main floor Fri 6:30pm-7:15pm 
Quetico - main floor Sun 1:30pm-2:15pm 

If you want to get eaten alive by bugs, go to the Canadian Arctic in June. The black flies and mosquitoes which live there weigh more than ten times as much as all the plants and animals put together! An acre of swarming bugs could drain all your blood in about three days! We'll check out "your enemies" - and learn how to resist them with repellents, insecticides, head and body nets, specialized clothing, and "attitude." Recommendations for children and pets will be included. There are some tricks Cliff is happy to share. All updated with the latest information!



 Cooking Secrets
Quetico - main floor Sat 2:30pm-3:15pm 

Here's a wealth of food ideas that will make your canoeing and camping trips more fun. Emphasis is on delicious, fast-to-fix entrees that take less than 20 minutes to make. Discover pita pizza, garlic-cheese pita, and tortilla melts, caramel roll burritos. Plus, cooking tricks for blustery weather, and large groups. Example: How to make oatmeal for eight on a one-burner trail stove without burning the porridge. And, keep hot food hot long enough for seconds and thirds!



 Storm-Proofing Your Camp
Superior - main floor Sat 9:30am-10:15am 
Quetico - main floor Sun 2:30pm-3:15pm 

If rain has ever penetrated your tent, or your tent or tarp has blown down in a storm, this fast-paced session is for you! You'll learn how to choose a good tent and storm-proof a bad one, rig a rain-tarp that won't blow down in high winds, pitch twin tarps that won't smoke you out when you build a fire out front pack your gear so it won't get wet in rain or a capsize, build a one-match fire in places like the BWCA where all the "good wood" has been picked over, and more!
