Host Your Own Cold Talk

We realize that not all groups can attend a Cold Talk, so we have recorded the 2015 version and posted it to YouTube for reference.

Also if you would like the PowerPoint slides to put with your own words, here is the file from 2023. Cold Talk PPT 2023

Subject matter should include:

  • Types of clothes to bring
  • Personal equipment
  • Accommodation
  • Hypothermia
  • Gas heaters in tents
  • Food

The warming tent is heated on Friday night, to assist with those who get cold during setup, and again on Saturday and Sunday night, during the dance.  It is purposely turned off shortly after the dance, to encourage participants to go to bed.

First Aid is available 24 hours a day during the camp for anyone needing assistance.
