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!
