Opening Winter Season Events
September 25th, 2015 in High Camp Happenings
We are looking forward to the coming winter season! There are sorts of snow predictions some are exciting and some not so good. We had a lot of fun at High Camp last season with more snow for skiing than most people expected. We believe this season will be good also, since Scottish Lakes is so much more than snow depth. The connections with wonderful people surrounded by nature in all its beauty no matter what the weather are truly what High Camp is all about.
We open our season with Thanksgiving. Again this year we will roast a turkey and the guests will provide side dishes. Our meal last year was wonderful thanks to Kelly the cook, Eric and Jason the hosts. Consider dining at Scottish Lakes High Camp this year for your Thanksgiving celebration, November 26th! The early season rates make it very affordable and we usually have snow:)
The Holiday Tree Trimming Party falls on family weekend in December, the 4th and the 5th. We gather around 4 pm in the lodge to string popcorn and cranberries, bake cookies, listen to carols and decorate. It is a simple gathering that brings warmth to your heart. Our regular potluck follows for dinner later that evening. This early season family weekend is the CHEAPEST time to bring your family to High Camp since the kids lodging is free and the rates are low. We still have cabins available for this weekend.
The holidays end with our Newfoundland New Years Celebration. Midnight in Newfoundland is 7 :30 our time, so that is when we count down to celebrate the new year. We start the party at 6 with hors d’oeuvres. It is so much fun since everyone brings there favorite gourmet delight to the potluck. Champagne and sparkling cider is provided. We only have one cabin left for that weekend. It is Foxfire that sleeps 8 – 10. A great place to spend the holiday with a group of close friends.
So as the larches glow we are reminded of the winter to come! Hope to see you along the way.
