Do you have any stories about camping this summer you'd like to share?

My son Andrew is on a canoe trip right now on the Saugeen River 3 days.
The church youth group he with had 6 youth and a couple of leaders. They
will be returning today. The weather has been very cool and wet here in Southern
Ontario all summer. Not great for camping. I'll post later about how my son's trip was.
Here's where you can find more info on the route:

My son and his youth group made it home from their canoe trip. They had a good time,
lots of paddling good weather, lots to eat {of course} they talked to a fella that caught a
blue bull frog. He even showed the boys pictures. My son was also telling me about a
fly away tent he saw last week, when he was camping last week with his scout troup.

Camping and Hiking Info

You have a better chance of getting injured driving to and back from your trailhead destination than you will while on the trail. I know after I've finnished a few days of camping in the great outdoors I'm beat. Be careful be safe have fun.


Keep your dog quiet. Frequent and continued barking disturbs the wildlife and other campers.

Try to take your dog for a pre-camping visit for possible needed shots, and a Rabies shot tag for his collar.

In hot weather to keep our hydration levels up we should constantly be sipping
water while hiking.

If you are hiking on a trail with your dog, keep him on a
leash, bring water for him as well, try to hike on cool shadey
trails or go in the early morning or evening. You both will
enjoy your hike more if you take care of these things.

Try to use ziplock bags to pick up after him and properly dispose of it in appropriate trash containers.

Did you know that 95% of hiking accidents happen coming down
or on the return trip. Be careful on grades or high places.

When hiking you burn a lot of energy, so drink plenty
of water and eat lots of snacks as you walk and during
rest breaks.


More info coming soon!
