Studies have shown that spending time in nature improves physical, mental and social well-being, and increases environmental awareness. The Parks Canada team will show you how to get started camping ... right here in the GTA!

Attendees will learn:
- how to plan and pack for a trip
- the use of basic camping gear (tents, cooking gear and campfire safety)
- how to respect wildlife and the natural environment

You'll also get a brief introduction to Rouge National Urban Park, the first of its kind in Canada.

This is a free, all ages workshop presented by staff from Rouge National Urban Park. Children are welcome to attend with a parent/guardian.

No registration required.

This is a Library Settlement Partnership (LSP) program, co-sponsored by Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada, Culturelink and the Toronto Public Library.
