Parks Canada Xplorers, Time to Explore!

Are you planning a family vacation and wondering how to keep the kids busy and happy?

Become an Xplorer, experience and have fun!

What is it about?

Are your children curious, bright, and active? Do they like challenges? Are they budding artists, dreamers or promising journalists? Then they are a perfect candidate to become a Parks Canada Xplorer.

When you arrive at a participating national park, national historic site or national marine conservation area, your children will receive an Xplorers booklet filled with fun activities that will guide your discovery of each unique place you are visiting.

When the kids have completed the requested number of activities they will be recognized as an official Xplorer with a certificate and a special collectible souvenir!
