Ice Cutting on the Pond at Flying Cloud
Be a part of the time-honored tradition of cutting ice from the pond at Flying Cloud to store in the ice house. Your hard work will provide refrigeration for Flying Cloud’s food the following summer! Saturday begins with an invigorating hike through the snow up to camp, then working in teams to cut, haul and stack large ice blocks. You return to the Tamarack Farm lodge in the evening with sore muscles, but full of the sweet feeling that comes from being outside all day in the winter air. After hot cocoa, hot food, a sauna and singing, you will be ready for a night of dancing.
Next one February 2022!
Turn soil, transplant seedlings, sow new seeds and more. With hot days and cool evenings, it is a perfect time to play soccer at the fairgrounds, go for a hike up to the ridge, or test out the lake for a swim. Once again, Saturday evening you’ll find yourself tapping your toes at the contra dance.
Next one May 2022!
The Fair is an annual, old-time country fair done Farm & Wilderness style. Attendees enjoy hand-powered rides, food, games, and concessions made by staff and campers. If this is your first year coming to Fair, you are in for a treat and if you’re a returning guest you know the magic this day holds! All visiting families, alumni and guests will meet campers and staff for a fun day on the Fairgrounds. Join us for camp info sessions, visit specialty booths, watch performances and participate in the annual contra dance and fire lighting ceremony.
Returning in August 2022!
