Camping on Manitoulin Island

Manitoulin boasts to be the largest freshwater island in the world and is located on the north end of Lake Huron. There are two ways you can get there from the main land:

Backpacking with Children

As many backpacking enthusiasts tell me, backpacking is a sport and should be taken seriously. It is not just a little stroll in the woods and it has its own rules and requirements.

Equipment

Camping with Your Family Pet

Kids and pets go together like peas and carrots. Many families camping with kids bring along their pets. Dogs are very popular at family campgrounds, and should follow the campground rules set for pets.

Family Canoe Camping

Many parents would like to know how old a child should be before getting into a canoe. The truth is that it has more to do with parents’ canoe skills than the age of the child. If the parents are experienced canoeists then canoeing with one-year old would be safe and had been successfully done before.

Camping in Heat

Last week we had an unusual heat wave in Ontario. People in the cities suffered and stayed indoors close to their air-conditioners.

Although they are very vulnerable, for thousands of years they had to survive in less than ideal conditions and thrive in the wilderness. In general babies are very resilient and can go anywhere their parents go. Like all kids they love to be outside.

Hiking is a very popular activity while camping. Whether going for a simple walk or doing some serious backpacking, it is a great way to explore and children love it.
