Parks Canada and the Friends of Keji are proud to present Thinking Outside: the Learn-to Camp Podcast. COVID-19 may have interrupted our plans to join you outside this summer, but we've made it our mission to bring camping and the outdoors to you.
Join us around our digital campfire as we feature tales from some of Nova Scotia's best storytellers, adventurers, and interpreters about what makes camping so important. Learn about how camping can improve your mental health, what camping is like for new Canadians, and more! The s'mores are almost ready, so come in and take your place!

In Thinking Outside: the Learn-to Camp Podcast's first ever episode, we're exploring why camping is important. Listen in to hear from Sarah Griffin, who led a group of students as young as 12 years old on a ~50 km hiking trip; George Woodhouse, whose Grade 4 camping changed his life; and Chris Surette, who loves showing others the things that made him fall in love with nature. We hope that these stories encourage you to pitch a tent in your backyard, take someone who's never gone camping before out into the woods, or explore your nearest Provincial or National Park.
