This tradition has grown into a large annual event that continues to celebrate the deep connection between man, nature and spirit, while gratefully honoring the HERITAGE of outdoor leaders and mentors past and present, in whose footsteps we follow.

    Once you stand with fellow nature lovers under a starry sky, with a flickering candle in your hand and a Yuletide carol in your heart, you will better understand the connections with your fellow man, the universe around us, and the ineffable spirit of a benevolent Creator. What better prelude to a joyous season!
