Camping initiative for new Canadians
Prince Albert National Park is hoping to teach new Canadians how to camp this summer.
Parks Canada is working with different immigration and outreach associations to invite new immigrants and young families to participate in an event that will teach the basic camping skills.
People will learn how to set up a tent, cook outdoors, what to pack, along with other valuable tips.
"The Learn to Camp initiative is a great opportunity for Canadians, especially those living in urban centres away from national parks, national marine conservation areas or in some cases, national historic sites, to discover the joys of camping," said Alan Fehr, the superintendent of Prince Albert National Park.
"An array of activities will be available to the participants while visiting Prince Albert National Park, providing them a memorable Canadian camping experience."
The organization is hoping it can gather a group of 50 people to come out to the event.
The Learn to Camp event at Prince Albert National Park will take place on June 22 and June 23.
