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.

Wildfire Survival

Wildfires of various types are becoming more common.  I worked with one of our members living in the northwest who has actually experienced these fires and was able to provide experience and references. Finally, I did research and then wrote the article with the survivalist approach. If you live in any of the wildfire, forest-fire, brush-fire prone regions, please share this information with your neighbors.
