How about getting involved in Champ Camp?
This event, brought to you by Michael Esordi of Believe It Tour and Craig Woolheater of Cryptomundo, is a real effort to build community, cryptozoologically.
Time: Friday, August 12, 2011, at 7:00pm – August 14, 2011, at 1:00pm
Location: Button Bay State Park, Vermont
This August treat yourself or your entire family to a fun-filled weekend with Believe It Tour at Champ Camp along Lake Champlain in beautiful Vermont.
Join Believe It Tour for this cryptozoology inspired camping adventure that everyone will enjoy. Whether you are an experienced researcher or someone just looking to learn more about the local legends around Lake Champlain’s very own lake monster, Champ, there’s something for everyone at this unique weekend extravaganza. Also in keeping with Believe It Tour’s strong environmental commitment we’ll be promoting an eco-friendly camping experience this year.
The exciting activities planned include lectures, evidence gathering workshops, educational demonstrations, a cookout, arts and crafts, and a 1½ hour boat cruise around Lake Champlain. All modules for Champ Camp are ala carte, so you can pick and choose what you want to do to customize your experience. This customizable format will allow you time to explore the lake and surrounding nature areas on your own via canoe, hiking, or biking. The campground also has a swimming pool and play ground if you want to stay close to camp. If you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of Champ if you decide to take a relaxing walk along the lake.
There is a limited number of VIP camp sites reserved next to the base camp, first come first serve. Other spots available through Vermont’s Button Bay State Park campground. Hotels are also available nearby. To lock in a VIP spot or to get tickets for any of the other functions visit here.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
