The Filipino Adventure Club is partnering with Parks Canada to co-host a special Learn-to-Camp Weekend at Riding Mountain National Park on the weekend of June 20-21, 2015.

One of the best ways to discover some of Canada’s most beautiful natural heritage areas is by spending the night in one of Parks Canada’s many campgrounds across the country. Starry nights, breathtaking views, tons of activities and a chance to bond with your family around an open campfire. Let these experiences inspire you at Parks Canada-operated campgrounds.

Fees for Learn to Camp Weekend are set at $44 per person, children under 5 are free. Included in the Learn to Camp fees are limited camping equipment such as tent, sleeping pads and firewood, access to all workshops and activities, park entry and camping fees.

Transportation to Riding Mountain National Park will be the responsibility of individual participants/families. For Filipino Journal Adventure Club members, there will be a private charter bus available at $35pp.

Things to bring: Food for all your meals, camp kitchen/cooking, sleeping bags, pillows, clothes, rain gear and other items you might bring out camping.
