Learn to Camp Sibbald Point 2013

When did you last get outside?

It’s Ontario Parks’ 125th anniversary, and our friends at Coleman Canada know there’s no better time to get outside!

We chatted with them to come up with five can’t-miss ideas for fun outdoor activities.

Why not…

1. Plan a picnic

Somehow, food just tastes better outside. Pack up and head outside for your next meal!

Looking for tips? Coleman’s got some great suggestions, from recipes to gear!

2. Relax by the water

Did you know listening to nature sounds like bird songs and rushing water can help lower stress levels. Grab your camp chair and head to the shoreline!

Prefer to cast a line? Whether you’re just starting out or are a seasoned pro, fishing is an activity any and all can enjoy.

3. Go camping

Camping in nature takes us away from common daily stresses like traffic, work, and noise pollution. Now’s the perfect time to book a trip.

Not a fan of “roughing it”? Fear not: these days, there are watertight tents and soft airbeds to keep you cozy.

4. Invite your family and friends to Learn to Camp

Love the idea of camping, but don’t know where to start? Our Learn to Camp program (sponsored by our friends at Coleman Canada) can help!

5. Make a splash

Whether you’re swimming at the beach, casting a line, or paddling across a lake, it’s all about the water. Escape summer’s sweltering heat by taking a dip.
