TORONTO, June 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Parks Canada gives you the opportunity to develop an original story; a unique camping weekend at the Glen Rouge Campground in the future Rouge National Urban Park on June 22nd and 23rd.
The Learn to Camp initiative offers young families and new Canadians a memorable first-time camping experience in Canada.
Over the weekend, participants will learn camping basics such as, how to set up a tent, how to cook outdoors, and what to pack. They will also benefit from helpful Parks Canada and Mountain Equipment Co-op staff tips to make their future camping adventure a success.
Julia and Colin, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors will take part in the Learn to Camp initiative at the future Rouge National Urban Park.
Pam Veinotte, Field Unit Superintendent, Rouge National Urban Park, will be pleased to share more details.
