What is it?

In 2013, Parks Canada piloted the Campus Club Program, an exciting initiative to get young adults excited about getting outside, connecting with nature and learning about Canada’s history. Over the past two years, Parks Canada Campus Clubs have been established at many post-secondary institutions and now form the Parks Canada Campus Club Network.

Why a campus club network?

  • It's a grassroots movement that is led "by youth, for youth"
  • To mobilize and inspire YOU and your generation
  • To connect with you where you study, work, live and play
  • To make your voice heard
  • To increase your awareness, also among your generation, about protected natural and cultural heritage found in your own backyard
  • To support your learning objectives and even recruit you eventually
  • To help you learning more about our jobs and volunteer opportunities

Our goal is to have a presence across Canada, and a stronger one in Quebec (i.e. French language post-secondary institutions), and establish additional or new clubs in all Canadian cities. If your university/college/cegep is not listed above, don't hesitate to start your own Parks Canada Campus Club!
