Camping... It's a park thing!

I work for Ontario Parks, as an Outdoor Educator. One of the problems of being a part of an operating park is that it is difficult to visit and learn from the styles and programs of other parks. This year I decided to take my summer student to a distant park, Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park, that has different but relevant programming (their program is much larger and they are doing programming that I aspire to at our little park). We were lucky enough to be able to camp during our stay, and take in a few of the sights while we were there:
We had a beautiful site, and it was a quiet park of the week so there weren't many people around. Upon our arrival there was a torrential downpour happening and we passed some time looking around the brand new museum/visitor centre. Once the rain stopped, we had a fire and some s'more making (more on that later :). And we even had time for a short trail - holy bugs!

It's been a really busy summer so far, so I was happy to fit this in! I know I have been neglecting my blog a little, and I'm sorry - lots on the go! However, I do have a few posts in the works, including some wedding updates! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer (or winter if you are below the equator!). See you soon!


  1. Oh I love camping!!!! Your job sounds so cool and we have so many beautiful parks in Ontario don't we? I have just moved here and I love exploring them all!

  2. You work for Ontario Parks? Cool! Beautiful photos of camping, thanks for sharing. That smore looks awesome.


Thanks so much for spending some time with me, if you're feeling up to it please leave me a note. I really enjoy them, and take the time to read every single one! :)
