If you are new to Edmonton, you will hear a lot of people talking about going camping during the summer months. However, it’s kind of difficult to go for the first time, since you need a lot of equipment, and you need to know what to do with all of the equipment. This program with MEC is excellent, especially if you don’t have a car. They will transport you to and from their downtown store, and provide all of your equipment and food. The only thing you have to bring is a sleeping bag or blankets, as well as a change of clothes. The cost is $88.
“We’ve made it easy for you. We’ll pick the location, supply all the gear, and even come with you. Through hands-on demonstrations, we’ll show you all of the tips and tricks you need to set up camp, cook your meals, and make your own fire. We’ll even do a few activity workshops so that once our 24 hours together are through, you have all of the skills you need to not just set-up, but get out there and enjoy.”
