The mission of Winter Field Day (WFD) is to encourage emergency preparedness during winter months when weather presents unique operational challenges. WFD will:

1 – Build your skills/confidence for winter camping

2 – Provide experience conducting outdoor radio communications under unusual conditions


Tents only. The group site we have reserved is a drive-up primitive site. There is a bathroom, but no other amenities. (you can reserve your own adjacent site if you want to bring a camper)

Chino Hills typically has January temperatures in the range of 69° / 40° – make sure you bring enough layers and a warm sleeping bag.


Bring your own food! The club is not providing food – this is a chance to plan how you’d eat in an emergency. Bagged, dehydrated food is an option – or you can bring a stove and get creative!


Chino Hills SP offers opportunities for both Summits on the Air (SOTA) and Parks on the Air (POTA) activations – you can do these in addition to participation in WFD!

  • SOTA San Juan Hill, W6/CT-230 (5.5 mile round trip hike from camp, with 1200 ft of ascent)
  • POTA Chino Hills State Park, K-1139
