Snowmobilers from all corners of the state – along with Newport area families, community leaders, volunteers, and businesses – enjoy a weekend packed with winter fun, food and festivities when the Snowmobile Ride-in to benefit Pine Tree Camp comes to town. The Ride-in, as it is called, has a long 44-year history and over that period of time, has made a significant impact through its support of Pine Tree Camp.
The Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in to benefit Pine Tree Camp features a variety of community events, an auction, spaghetti supper, ice fishing derby, chicken barbecue and the not-to-be-missed Q106.5 Celebrity Egg Ride, all to raise money for Pine Tree Camp. All proceeds go directly to Pine Tree Camp’s Campership fund. Since Pine Tree Camp began in 1945, it has never turned a camper away due to inability to pay tuition. We are proud of this Open Door policy and the Snowmobile Ride-in helps ensure that it’s kept firmly in place.
