Canada’s Coolest School Trip is back for another year!

Today marks the start of this year’s Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest. Any grade 8 / secondary 2 class can enter to win a four-day all-expenses-paid trip to Parks Canada places on the coast of beautiful British Columbia.

Three Things You Might Not Expect to Take Camping

Whether you’re a first-time camper or an experienced outdoors person, you probably have a list of must-pack items for your next camping trip: tent, sleeping bag, food, cooking supplies, first aid kit, clothes, and of course your My Parks Pass. But have you ever considered taking these three things?

Olivia and her family bring you the Ultimate Family Adventure!

Olivia C., the winner of this year’s Ultimate Family Adventure contest, recently returned from her grand prize trip and wanted to tell you all about it. The trip, a 4-day whirlwind tour of Parks Canada places in Cape Breton, took place from July 19 - 22, and included tons of different activities!

How Will You Celebrate Parks?

Parks Day is a national celebration of Canada’s amazing natural and historic places from coast to coast to coast. It is held each year on the third Saturday of July – this year on July 20. Bring your family, bring your friends and enjoy all that Canada has to offer on Parks Day!

Here are just a few of the events we would love to attend this weekend:

Prince Edward Island National Park

The Great Island Sandcastle Competition

From Caronport to Cape Breton: Join the Adventure!

When they created their winning video entry of the students dreaming about a Fortress of Louisbourg field trip, Mrs. Pylatuk’s grade 8 class had no idea how wild the adventure would be. From a behind-the-scenes tour of Air Canada’s Pearson airport facility, to sleeping in the barracks at the Fortress of Louisbourg and hiking the Skyline Trail, the class has just returned home after a 4-day whirlwind tour of Parks Canada places in Cape Breton as part of Canada’s Coolest School Trip.
