Developer: Thalamus Ltd.

Winter Camp is the sequel to Summer Camp. Maximus Mouse is now a rescue ranger at Camp Nice'n'Icy, but he soon notices a bird who will knock a pebble down a mountain, setting off a avalanche that will engulf the camp, unless he can prevent it, over eight varied levels.

The levels offer various challenges. The most common type of level is a patrol. There are three such levels, involving ice skating, boating on a river, and skiing. On each level you have a quota of rescues to make. There are various obstacles on the levels, and a variety of objects to use to avoid them. For example, a spring will allow you to jump over a stretch of water.

At the end of each of these levels is a boss, who must be defeated using the objects you have collected. The bosses are easier to defeat the more rescues you perform.

Other levels include a skate training level, a snowball fight with bears hiding in trees, and a memory game with a cameo appearance by Clyde Radcliffe from the Creatures series. Most of the levels have a time limit, indicated by the bird moving towards the pebble.
