Visit our outreach booths and participate in workshops at local parks, beaches, libraries and special events near you. Take part in immersive activities that introduce your family to camping. With the help of experienced Parks Canada staff, participants will learn how to plan a trip, what to pack, wildlife safety and more.

In addition to pop-up activities throughout the city, Parks Canada is offering two overnight events for families to experience camping this summer. Join the Vancouver Learn-to Camp team the weekends of July 27 to 28 in the City of Richmond or August 10 to 11 in Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. Families will learn the basics of setting up a tent and using a camp stove, while having plenty of time for exploring, playing and connecting around the campfire! By the end of the weekend, your family will have a new appreciation for nature and be set up to create a lifetime of camping memories.

In collaboration with Mountain Equipment Company, alongside many community partners, the Learn-to Camp program brings to life the essence of what makes Canada’s outdoor spaces so spectacular. The program is designed to be inclusive, safe and accessible for all families, regardless of your level of camping experience or ability. Parks Canada staff are happy to accommodate special needs or requirements to ensure that everyone can participate and have a great time.

If you’re ready to sleep under the stars and learn new skills, sign up for a Learn-to Camp program today! It’s a great opportunity to bond with your family, make new friends and experience the beauty of Canada’s natural environment.
