Calumet Council (Northwestern Indiana/South of Chicago Illinois) defines
the Polar Bear Requirements as camping outside (tent qualifies) in Nov, Dec,
Jan, or Feb ...
Yes, that means depending on the flakeness of the weather, you can "earn"
your Polar Bear in 60 degree weather...
On the flip side, two years age, the annual Potowatomi Trail Hike at the
Indiana Dunes State Park, always the 2nd week-end in March, had sub-zero
tempatures and 45+ mph winds off Lake Michigan (BRUTAL) and those who
camped did NOT qualify for the Patch .... March does not count
