One Night Car Camping

Many people spend all their time in cities, without an opportunity to experience nature. Here is the perfect chance to get outside and become familiar with the Canadian wilderness. With the right equipment, clothing, and training, you can be comfortable sleeping on the ground in a small tent. Get in touch with the earth! 

This two-day program will give you the essential skills to camp in a Provincial Park near Ottawa. Each participant or group will be assigned a camp site and taught how to set up a tent, light a fire, and cook a meal. Camping with a vehicle means that you have a secure space to store your luggage and food, to keep them away from animals.

This is a perfect trip for families, as an introduction to the Canadian wilderness.

We want to offer a special invitation to new Canadians to learn these essential Canadian skills and delights.

You will be challenged by discomfort from insects and weather. You might be challenged by silence, darkness, unfamiliar sounds, and a sense of isolation. You will be rewarded by fresh air, clean water, and the incredible smells of nature. You will finish the trip with new knowledge and skills and an appreciation of the Canadian landscape. You might be tempted to sign up for our one-night Canoe Camping or Backpacking trips, the six-day journey down the Barron River in Algonquin Park, or even the 14 day trip The Canadian Shield.
