There’s nothing like a campfire in the forest, but now whether you are camping in the Wasagaming Campground or relaxing at home, you can join us! Welcome to our Virtual Campfire series. A time to explore family favourites, such as sing along songs, species-at-risk, and indigenous song, craftwork and stories.

Every week, we’ll be featuring three different campfire experiences to brighten up your weekend. Best of all – they’re free! Email us and register to join in (on your computer or mobile device) from your backyard, tent or blanket fort!
