Parks Canada and MEC have been working together for over 10 years.

As part of its 100th anniversary celebrations in 2011, Parks Canada (in partnership with MEC) launched the first Learn-to Camp events.

The Learn-to Camp program connects first-time campers with the Canadian camping experience. Participants learn all kinds of outdoor skills, with the goal of fostering an appreciation for nature and set families up for a lifetime of camping memories. This year, since in-person events had to be cancelled or paused, it was time to get creative and find new ways to inspire people to try camping for the first time.

Introducing the Learn-to Camp scavenger hunt giveaway! Discover handy camping tips and test your skills in our virtual scavenger hunt giveaway. The winner takes home a Parks Canada pass and an awesome camping set-up, complete with an MEC tent, a Yeti cooler and Ritter Sport chocolate.
