In the Chequamegon National Forest, about an hour away (Northwest) from Wausau, WI. This is pretty “primitive camping,” people: that means no flush toilets, no electricity, no WI-FI, etc. You will need to make a light-hike in with your gear from the road. THE EXACT LOCATION WILL BE GIVEN VIA EMAIL TO THOSE THAT HAVE REGISTERED, 5 DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT.
Recommended gear: Tent, sleeping bag, tarp (not completely necessary, but you can’t go wrong with an extra tarp, they’re very lightweight), gallon of water, your own dishes (plate, spoon, cup or water bottle, bowl), boots, headlamp/flashlight, layers of clothing to stay warm, extra food and snacks.
There is going to be meals provided (vegan and gluten free options), but it is always recommended to bring some snacks for yourself. Also, any sort of food donations you could bring the day of would be a pleasant surprise.

Please no Alcohol. There won’t be “booze police”, knocking on your tent or inspecting your cups for the scent of liquor, but out of respect to those recovering from alcoholism we ask that you please please please refrain from getting wasted at this camp. This camp is less of a party and more of a place to learn skills to protect land and water.
Recent concerns that were raised by some attendees (pooping, trampling sensitive habitat, being tied up against their will while you’re at workshops all day, fighting with other dogs) has led us to strongly encourage you to leave your dog at home.
