Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites are not offering some visitor services at this time. Please check our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. 

Every year, Parks Canada and Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) team up to teach hundreds of people how to camp.

Sleeping in a tent under the stars, taking an evening flashlight walk, telling stories around the campfire… it’s time to start the tradition and make some memories with the help of the Learn-to Camp Vancouver team!
