Ho, ho, ho Santa is at eXplore Brown County to zip with you and to find out if you’ve been good! Santa will share the beauty of the winter landscape in the Brown County hardwood forest.

Santa will investigate with you the winter life of the forest. Take photos with Santa, sit on his lap, and tell him what you are dreaming of for the holidays! Santa will end the tour with a cup of hot cocoa in the nice warm Harvest Hall. Don’t forget the marshmallows!

Navigate the hills of Brown County during this unique orienteering race! Perfect for beginners, there's also going to be a bonus point format and added night event to keep veteran racers out punching checkpoints until their toes go numb. What is a Rogaine? A Rogaine is simply a race in which participants use a map and compass to locate checkpoints (CPs). The goal is to locate the most CPs in the allotted time. Sometimes CPs are assigned a point value according to their difficulty. Then the goal is to get the most points. There is no set course so you are free to choose any route you'd like!
