*PAST EVENT* (ON) Community Hike and Intro to Camping Workshop
Join us on a short hike, and afterwards, join us to learn about front country camping!
Where and When
This event will be held outdoors, at Rouge National Urban Park from 10am to 1pm, and will start at the bottom of Zoo Road. Thank you to Parks Canada’s Learn to Camp team for their partnership in this event!
Who This Workshop Is For
This is a 2 part event for all BIPoC that are looking to come on a hike to build community and improve on their knowledge of camping. We will hike for 90 minutes before attending a 90 minute Learn to Camp Workshop hosted by Parks Canada to learn more about front-country camping. This session is open to all experience levels since both beginners and experienced folks can learn more about front-country camping and build community along the way.
10am to 11:30am
Cedar and Beare Wetlands trail ; Location for Start
The hike will be led by Priya Moraes, the CTT Southern ON Lead, who will share about her hiking and camping experiences and provide some of her insights into getting comfortable with hiking.
Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy while we learn from Learn to Camp volunteers! Together, we will explore how to safely try camping for the first time. We will cover topics such as necessary equipment, wildlife considerations, and how to enjoy a safe campfire!
Please remember to bring:
– LOTS of water (there is no running water there),
– a chair just in case (LTC will have picnic tables and some folding chairs)
– sun protection (we have no shade- but will have some small beach tents just in case)
– printed Parking passes (will be sent via email to participants)
