Have kids but don’t know the first thing about camping? Have no fear. Every year, Parks Canada and Mountain Equipment Co-op host Learn to Camp weekends where families can learn all the basics and stay in a tent overnight.
The 2018 edition of this event will feature workshops on camping-related skills, such as how and where to set up a tent, how to cook outdoors and other essentials.
On June 16, July 14, and August 11, Parks Canada’s Esplanade du Centenaire at the Lachine Canal will be turned into a campground. On top of various camping workshops, 30-minute rabaska outings will be offered at no extra cost.
On June 9 to 10, Lévis Forts National Historic Site will also be hosting a Learn to Camp weekend where you will get to live like a soldier in a 19th century fort environment and camp on the parade ground.
The cost starts at $88 for four people, including the tent, ground mats and breakfast. To reserve your spot, call 1-844-365-2646. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
