Enter the U.S. National Toboggan Championships in Camden

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Toboggan Championships

Every February, thrill seekers – and plenty of spectators – converge on the Camden Snow Bowl for three days of action-packed fun. The U.S. National Toboggan Championships are toboggan races down a wooden chute at lightning speeds that spit two- and four-person teams out onto a frozen pond. The competition is thrilling and plenty of tailgating happens right out on the pond. Food trucks and fire pits will keep you fed and warm between races, and at the end, the winning teams have bragging rights that last a lifetime. Costumes for competitors are optional, but they’re a much-loved part of the event, so put together a team, dust off your old wooden toboggan and figure out your outfits. Then all you need to do is hold on tight!
