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

Welcome to our NEW Community Blog!

Let's make this a "Living" page and exchange our thoughts and knowledge freely!

Everyone has their specific skill set, therefore, we all have the ability to teach or learn something new. It is always a good idea to expand our abilities to enable ourselves to "live outside the norm". That is what emergency preparedness is all about!
