We’re heading out to Wausau, Wisconsin for a long weekend stay at YMCA Camp Sturtevant. This is a winter sports hub with nearby access to downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, winter hiking, and snowtubing on an awesome tubing hill with 6 runs. We’ll have the Riverside Lodge building at the camp all to ourselves, complete with central fireplace, two wings with 15 bunk beds each, hot showers, and a limited kitchen. This is the event you have been asking for!!
YMCA Camp Sturtevant is an ideal setting for groups with close access to downhill skiing & snowboarding at Granite Peaks, snow shoeing at Rib Mountain, or cross country skiing at Nine Mile Park. Check out this link for more detailed information on recreation available in the area:
Cost includes your stay at the Lodge and all breakfasts and dinners from dinner on Thursday night through breakfast on Sunday. All lunches will be on our own as we come and go on various schedules. All beverages are BYOB - there is space for coolers but not space in the refrigerator.
In addition, lift tickets, cross country trail fees, transportation, etc. are not included. Wausau is about a 4 to 5 hour drive from Chicago, depending on your starting point and the weather conditions for driving. As always, we encourage coordinating car-pools for the trip, so if you can offer or need a ride, include that info in your RSVP or post it on the meetup comments.
THIS TRIP WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FIRST 30 PEOPLE TO PAY ALTHOUGH I MAY OPEN IT UP TO MORE ATTENDEES IF THERE IS A LARGE WAITLIST. You must pay via Paypal to RSVP Yes. The cost will be $85 for a 3-night stay. There is also an option for a 2-night stay for those who cannot arrive until Friday for a cost of $70. When you RSVP Yes, you will have to pay the full amount, but if you add in your RSVP comments that you are staying 2 nights you will be refunded the difference within 48 hours.
REFUNDS are only available if you cancel 2 weeks in advance. After that, there will be NO refunds unless the trip is canceled!
Mark your calendars - this is going to be a trip you will not want to miss!
