Winter Rendezvous

Annual Event

Every January, Deep Portage Learning Center welcomes you to our annual Winter Rendezvous: a fun-filled day of old-time games and activities.


Journey back in time and learn about the cultural heritage of Minnesota. In this one-day event activities will be based on traditions from Lumberjacks, Voyageurs and Native Americans.  Try your hand at events such as snowsnakes, spear throwing using atlatls, the cross-cut saw, trap shooting, northwoods curling and much more! Bring the whole family to join in a friendly community competition while learning about the rich cultural history of the area. 


Winter Rendezvous
January 20th, 2024

Deep Portage's Annual Winter Rendezvous is just around the corner! On Saturday, January 20th we invite folks out to enjoy a day of outdoor winter fun. Participants spend the day in friendly competition trying out activities such as axe throwing, snow snakes, spear throwing, and more. High scorers in all age classes even bring home an award! If you are less athletically-inclined, have no fear - you even get points for eating some hot-off-the-griddle johnny cakes.

A tasty hot lunch inside our gorgeous Dining Hall during the event is sure to warm you on even the coldest days. Bring your family, bring a date, bring your friends - it's good fun for everyone!
