CAMP INDEPENDENCE UPDATE

CAMP INDEPENDENCE UPDATE

Live Free has reserved Tepicon Hall at Tippecanoe River State Park in Northcentral Indiana for Saturday May 22nd 2021. At this point, we cannot be sure if the hall will actually be available or what pandemic related restrictions will be in effect, but we will have a program at that site on that date. Several of our officers have secured lodging in the adjoining Rent-A-Camp section.  In the event that we cannot do indoor classes, we will be doing a series of programs based outside of these cabins and in the woods and fields.  If the hall is available we will have the usual combination of indoor and outdoor presentations, and food services.  Either way: we strongly recommend that those planning to participate secure Rent-A-Camp cabins* or camp sites for Friday night May21 and Saturday Night May 22 to maximize participation and networking. The rates will still be $20.00 per individual or $30.00 per person. There is also a park admission fee paid at the gate. We should have a detailed flyer and program available by March.

*Cabins accommodate four people, so families or groups can rent together. Cabins have bunks, tables and electricity.  These cabins are usually rented far in advance and will be gone by February or sooner so do not delay. Go to the Indiana DNR website to reserve cabins and camp sites.

CAMP INDEPENDENCE 2021

CAMP INDEPENDENCE WILL RETURN

  America’s original survival and preparedness education event will be back in 2021.  We had to cancel this went in 2020 because the venue was not available and we did not want to endanger our participants or the public with this gathering.  The 2021 event will be more important than ever as we continue to deal with the effects of the pandemic, civil unrest, economic instability, and a multitude of ongoing and developing survival challenges.  We also intend to use this as a networking and unifying event for leadership and preparedness groups throughout the region.  Plan now to attend and bring members of your family and group.  We are now gathering instructors and speaker, and will welcome suggestions*. We will start taking registrations later this year, but those seeking to secure a camp site or “Rent-A-Camp: cabin for the event should do so immediately as these are very limited and often reserved far in advance.  We suggest that you secure a place for Friday evening the 21st and Saturday evening the 22nd.  Reservations can be made online at the Indiana DNR website.

Saturday May 22th 2021, 9:00 AM till 6:00 PM (EST), At Tepicon Hall, at Tippecanoe River State Park, North of Winamac Indiana on US Highway 35.

$20.00 per person, $30.00 per family
