A series of vignettes showing families participating in Learn-to Camp activities, including tent workshops, campfire programming, camp cooking demonstrations and various recreational activities.

The ‘Learn to Camp’ program is offered at many National Parks and National Historic Sites throughout Canada.

In collaboration with MEC, alongside many community partners,

this program brings to life the essence of what makes our land and parks so spectacular.


All the basics of camping are covered in an inclusive, safe and FUN way

while leaving plenty of time for lots of exploring, playing and connecting around the campfire!



While the aim of ‘Learn-to Camp’ is to provide the opportunity to learn the fundamentals,

you’ll leave captivated by these incredible places, history and stories of this land and all the people who call it home.

For your chance to experience Learn to camp, come join us this summer… we’ll have the S’mores waiting!
