Fear of Camping

Are you afraid to take your kids camping? Camping can be challenging, but the rewards are worth the effort. The key is to be well prepared. So let’s have a look at the most common fears:

1. Wild animals.

Camping is What Canadians Do

Campfire Safety

Last year we had terrible draughts across North America and in many places campfires were prohibited. All it takes is one spark and the entire forest could go up in flames. It is important to follow local fire restrictions and fire bans, even if it causes an inconvenience. That is why all campers should have a portable stove. Although food tastes better when prepared over the real fire, portable stoves should be a part of every camper’s equipment.

Favourite Camping Activities

My kids love camping and we love camping too. And each year we look forward to the same activities that never get old and tired, even though we go to the same campround every year. I am also sure that these outdoor activities are the favourites of many families.



Here is a sample of our last season's camping activities:


What Could Go Wrong When Camping with Baby

What could go wrong when you go camping with your baby? This must be a big question for all new parents who would like to go camping again. How should we prepare? What extra equipment do we need? Is it really safe?

Camping with My Baby

Stay Cool in the City

We are experiencing an unusual heat wave in Toronto this summer and I wish I could escape the city and go camping. Actually we are going camping in just a few days, but in the meantime we are reaching 92 degrees...You can't really ignore global warming anymore.

But how about these who for some reason cannot escape the city, what are they to do?
