Winter Survival Weekend
2022 Winter Survival Weekend
The 2022 Winter Survival Weekend was cancelled due to Covid-19 and staffing challenges.
Are you ready for a challenge? Each January, Minnesota Wing organizes a Winter Survival Weekend near Bemidji, MN! Temperatures regularly drop below zero, and cadets use skills they've learned to survive and thrive for a few nights outdoors. Cadets build shelters, take turns on Fire duty, and perform mock search and rescue missions during the day, then sleep overnight in temperatures sometimes approaching -20 degrees!
