Some snacks will be provided but you may want to bring your own. Sunday’s lunch will be provided as we will be away from our campsites; sandwiches, wraps, chili and salads will likely be part of our meal. Options for those with any dietary restrictions will be provided. We will collect this information at the time of registration.
3. Where will I store my food?
Food should not be stored in your tent when camping because it may attract wildlife. Store your food in your cooler, IN your vehicle after each meal.
4. Can I bring my own food for Sunday’s lunch?
If you do bring your own lunch for Sunday, please let our event staff know so they may reduce the food order for Sunday’s meal.

Tent set-up © Parks Canada
We have a very limited amount of 6-person tents and are reserving those for larger families/groups of 5-6 people. Even if the group is willing to pay the price of a 6-person tent we will keep the larger tents for larger groups. That way, we are able to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to participate in Learn-to Camp.
9. How do I get to Riding Mountain National Park and the Campground?
The park is easily accessible by car and bus from centres to the north, east and south. Highway #10 connects Brandon, 95 km (59 miles) to the south, with Wasagaming (the park's Visitor Services Centre) and continues to Dauphin, 13 km (8 miles) beyond the northern border of RMNP. More detailed directions will be provided upon reservation.
Lake Audy Campground
The group will meet in Onanole, MB to drive together to the campground. More detailed directions will be provided upon reservation.
10. What if the weather is bad?
The Learn-to camp event will occur rain or shine and only be cancelled if weather conditions are dangerous. Participants will be contacted at the phone number they provided if we need to cancel.
