Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites, in collaboration with Mountain Equipment Co-op, will offer a first-time camping experience this summer. Learn-to Camp will teach camping basics such as how to set up a tent, how to cook outdoors, what to pack, and other tips to new Canadians and first-time campers.
“The Learn-to Camp initiative is a great opportunity for Canadians to discover the joys of camping,” said Matthew Payne, Visitor Experience Manager for Parks Canada. “Participating families will sleep in a tent overnight and enjoy activities such as a nature walk and campfire with experts and other families. Meals and equipment complete this memorable Canadian camping experience.”
The goal is to gather 100 participants for the June 22 and 23 campout.
