Learn-to Camp in Vancouver

If your organization is interested in our staff delivering a Learn-to Camp workshop, please refer to the ‘Contact us’ section .

The Parks Canada Learn-to Camp program equips you with the knowledge and skills you need to feel confident planning and carrying out your first camping adventure. In the Vancouver region, we typically offer three ways you can get your first taste of camping or enhance your skills and take your camping experience to a new level. If your organization is interested in our staff delivering a virtual Learn-to Camp workshop, please refer to the ‘Contact us’  section.

Pop-up activities

Free drop-in sessions have finished for this year. Check back in the spring to see where we will be stationed to introduce participants to Parks Canada and camping in the great outdoors, and provide information on outdoor safety.

Follow us on Twitter @ParksCanadaVan or Facebook @ParksCanadaVancouver for updates on where we might be!

Workshops

Workshop registration for 2022 is now closed. Check back in March of 2023 to book in for our summer offerings.

Free in-person workshops to help participants acquire basic camping skills and learn about outdoor activities. Registration is required and the latest COVID-19 safety recommendations will be followed.
