Your Guide To
Family Camping And Hiking



It's time to get your family camping and hiking.

Our family has been camping and hiking since we were all crawling. 

Now we're sharing those experiences with our young family and sharing our expert knowledge and experience with you.We'll be happy to answer your questions and share our wealth experience with everything and anything camping and hiking related. We go car camping, wilderness camping, backpacking, day hiking and these days are strapping our newest hiker to our backs and taking along our St. Bernard with us.  Camping with kids, backpacking as a couple and loving the outdoors the way nature intended.

It's that time of year again! The weather is warming up, the summer of 2016 is nearly upon us and the lakes, wilderness, mountains and campgrounds are calling. Look at the camping and hiking gear you have stored away and take some of our experienced advice on what you may still need or want to add to your family camping collection!

Doesn't this picture make you want to jump in? I took this photo at a fabulous campsite in Northern British Columbia and our whole family jumped in many times.  Incredibly refreshing!

Breathe in the freshest air and feel the peace that only being in nature can bring to you and the people you love.
Head up a mountain, swim in a lake, camp under the stars and make up your own fun and excitement.

If you've never camped or hiked and are a bit hesitant to get out there take a look at the experience we offer and find out why getting out into the wild and leaving the city life behind is a very nuturing for the soul.
