Dear Scout Leader,

We regret to inform you that we are cancelling IceFest 2023.  Due to the unseasonably warmer winter, Lake Stillwater will not be frozen enough for it to be safe to have over 400 people doing activities on it.   It most likely won't be safe for any amount of people to walk on it.

The Minsi Trails Council will be working on refunds for those that have paid.  

Those units who have cabin, tabin, or campsite reservations can still stay at the camp and do your own unit programing.  

We hope to see you next year at the 2024 Winter IceFest at Camp Minsi.  

Yours in Scouting,

Winter IceFest Committee

 

Saturday, February 18, 2023 (9AM-4PM) at Camp Minsi

Come experience winter at Camp Minsi with a day of fun on the frozen water of Stillwater Lake. Programs will run from 9AM to 4PM on Saturday; units are responsible for their own accommodations, meals and leadership. Units can reserve overnight accommodations in our online registration system.

The IceFest programs includes:

  • Our annual ice fishing extravaganza - including hands-on ice fishing demos on Stillwater Lake, equipment displays, and cooking demos.
  • Winter snow and ice games - including ice golf, ice auger relays, snowshoe races, and more!
  • Ice safety presentation and rescue tutorials.
  • Special presentations and displays on old time timbering tools and the historic ice harvesting industry of the Poconos and Stillwater Lake.
  • Winter hikes and camp tours.
  • Refreshments, fellowship and fireplace.
  • Food, drinks and lunch (hotdogs, chili, chips, sodas, etc) available for purchase in the Dining Hall (or bring and cook your own).
  • The program costs $10 per person -- includes a collectible patch and hot beverage refreshments for all participants.

Event is snow or shine!  Ice access will be based on thickness of the ice and outdoor conditions at camp.
