On Canada Day, Parks Canada invites you to a camping event…at home. For this home getaway, we invite you to pitch your tent, share campfire stories and BBQ your favorite recipes. Try out these fun ideas for a memorable backyard camping experience.
To join in, share some of your photos using #CampIn
Pitch a tent
Find the perfect spot in your backyard, living room or basement and set up your tent with some great advice from Parks Canada’s Learn to Camp team. Next, roll out your blankets and pillows, get your flashlights, favourite game or book and enjoy a camp-in experience!
Camp fire stories
Gather around the fire and bring out the storyteller in you. Take turns sharing your favorite stories while roasting marshmallows. But remember to follow local rules about outdoor fires. Don't have a fireplace? Have a candlelight storytelling vigil!
