7th Annual “Frozen Butt Hang” Overnight Hammock Camp-Out & Pot-Luck Dinner
GET YOUR HANG ON! Grab your hammocks and come on out and join us on our 6th Annual “Frozen Butt Hang” overnight hammock camp-out at Germantown MetroPark. NO HIKING required, just “hanging” out, testing your rig, and checking out other hammocks with other fellow hangers. Though the name of this event is tongue-and-cheek (no pun intended), we do not want any participant to end up with a “frozen butt.” You must be prepared for this event.* If you have any questions, please ask us.
Bring something to share (enough for 4 people) at Saturday Night’s POT LUCK DINNER (entree, side dish or dessert). After a starry night in the piney woods wake up and make yourself a hearty breakfast. Followed up by a hike to the parking lot! Don’t forget to check out the many other trails that Five Rivers MetroParks has to offer. Join Great Miami Outfitters on this overnight camp-out, exclusively with hammocks.
Don’t hesitate to stop by the shop to see us or call us with any additional questions! (937) 847-8787
