There’s nothing quite like sleeping under the stars, sitting around a campfire and spending quality time with the family. But for family campers, packing up the kids, setting up a tent and living in the outdoors can seem like a daunting task. Turn that family camping trip into an inclusive, comfortable and addictive pastime! Here are a few helpful tips on how to plan and pack for any camping adventure.
Canoeing is a classic summer experience that many of us will remember from days at camp as a child. You don’t have to send the kids to camp, though, to get a safe introduction to paddling. Canoeing is a sport that the whole family can enjoy in Kananaskis and Banff this summer with little to no previous experience.
Spring is almost here, and it’s a great time to plan the family’s first hike of the season. Many trails in Kananaskis come into condition by March or early April, and you’ll find that parks are much quieter this time of year. Check out these suggested trails and put one on your calendar for a fun Spring-break outing.
As a teacher, I believe that it's important to help our children experience the history, traditions, and cultural legacies which make Alberta great. If you want to share Alberta's unique and diverse heritage with your kids - minus the crowds, party atmosphere, and expense of the Stampede - we have some great suggestions for daytrips which will help you and your family learn about the fascinating history of the city and province we call home.
