Gary Stedman had some interesting comments on winter
camping in Canada.
From my experience, Canadian Scouters take the winter
camping much more seriously than the US scouters I know.

A friend from the Thunder Bay area who I met at Calumet, said
when asked what he does differently in the winter than the summer,
said "When the temperature drops below minus 40 F. I don't
shave in the morning."
Very few scouters I know actively tent camp in the winter, I believe
(and hope) due to lack of proper knowledge, experience, and
