A for Adventure is proud to partner with Parks Canada. The goal of this partnership is to work cooperatively and collaboratively to encourage and invite Canadians to get out and explore our national parks, national historic sites and cultural heritage. In the summer of 2016, A for Adventure will be visiting many sites across the country working with the Learn to Camp program. This includes filming, capturing, sharing as well as creating programs and enhancing the ‘Learn to Camp’ experience for participants.
WHAT IS LEARN TO CAMP?
Learn to Camp is an initiative by Parks Canada to give people the skills to camp! These events are hosted across Canada and offer you the opportunity to learn how to plan and enjoy safe and successful camping trips. Workshops include basic skills such as how to set up, making a fire, to cooking in the outdoors, and cultural experiences.
Most Learn to Camp events are open to anyone; kids, families and individuals of all ages who are looking to experience our National Parks and learn some new skills in a safe and fun environment. Events include overnight camping!
No gear? No problem! Parks Canada has partnered with MEC who provide the tents, sleeping pads, cooking material and more. So no excuses
