If you have always wanted to camp but weren’t sure where to start or where the best Ontario summer camps are located, Ontario Parks now offers you no excuses.
The ‘Learn To Camp’ program reaches all ages and skill levels. From the grizzled and gruff outdoorsman to the budding teen looking to pitch a tent for the first time.
In the Greater Toronto Area, Earl Rowe and Emily Provincial Parks host Learn To Camp this summer and this is in addition to existing programs at Bronte Creek, Darlington, Sibbald Point and Six Mile Lake Provincial Parks. “Learn To Camp” will also be offered at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park in Eastern Ontario, Selkirk Provincial Park in Southwestern Ontario and Grundy Lake Provincial Park in Northern Ontario.
Perspective campers can learn how to kayak in addition to learning how to build a dry stone wall.
Included as part of the “Learn To Camp” experience is “Learn To Fish” when wannabe angles can learn which rod and reel is right to catch the big one. More information about it is available at OntarioParks.com
A new ‘Graduate’ program gives past Learn To Camp participants the chance to enhance their skills even further. Enrollees can choose a one or two-night session at an existing Learn To Camp location or opt for a solo experience at Grundy Lake Provincial Park with limited guidance provided.
It’s $74 plus HST for a 1 night & 2 day stay, and $120.75 plus HST for a 2 day and 3 night stay. More information is available at OntarioParks.com
