News and Event Details
The SOAP Winter Campout event on February 26th and 27th was an extreme adventure to say the least. Although we stayed near home on the lawn between McCaskill Hall and the Holden Fine Arts building, it felt like the 10 of us were marooned in an arctic wonderland. Throughout the evening we took turns digging our shelter into the snow pile and taking breaks for hot cocoa and Dutch oven cobbler.
Outside temperatures dipped down to -10o but inside our beautiful snow shelter it was 35o! Some participants stayed the entire night and others left for home as they reached the limits of their comfort.
In the morning we skipped breakfast because everyone was ready to go home. A great time was had by all and valuable winter camping skills and experience were gained. We look forward to the next Campus Campout coming up this spring on April 9th. Hopefully then we'll have warmer weather!
Through our programs and facilities, Campus Recreation provides an array of recreation and wellness opportunities that foster active and healthy lifestyles.
