In today’s post, Assistant Program Coordinator Megan Birrell takes us through her latest camping caper.
This fall, I took my mom to Arrowhead Provincial Park for our first fall camping experience. Not only was this our first time camping after Labour Day, but it was also my mom’s first time tent camping in over 20 years, so this was a big change.
I grew up camping around the province in massive trailers that, while comfortable, are not the easiest to tow around. So in the past few years I’ve switched back to tent camping, and this time my mom was joining me.
Our main worries ahead of our trip were:
- what if it’s too cold?
- what is there to do?
- do we have the right gear?
With a little planning we soothed those worries, although some other issues popped up in the process.
