Learn-to-Camp weekend is an excellent opportunity to introduce camping to families and doing it at a national park is an essential Canadian experience. Over 40 people participated in last summer’s Learn-to-Camp program at Riding Mountain National Park. Several workshops and presentations were made throughout the weekend and included an angling adventure geared towards the kids and fishing. Other workshops included GPS and geocaching, outdoor cooking techniques and learning how to build a really awesome camp fire.
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.
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.
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.
