How to Camp Like a Pro This Summer: The Lumberjack Workshop Weekend

Warm fires and bright stars - camping season is right around the corner but do you have the chops to survive in the wilderness? Discover if you have what it takes to do a quintessentially Canadian experience. Escape the amenities of suburbia and become one with nature at the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum in Kingston as they host their annual Lumberjack Workshop Weekend this June.

While the idea of camping in the great outdoors may seem intimidating, trust me it's amazingly fun and therapeutic. 

But hey, if you've never pitched your own tent, made coffee on a Coleman stove or roasted marshmallows over a campfire, get out your flannel and join this sweet outdoor camping experience for adults and hone your skills in the great outdoors!

Lakeside, or in the forest, once you've mastered the fundamental skills, the choice will be yours.

Experts at this weekend workshop will teach you the ins and outs of all things outdoors. From survival skills, fire starting, campfire cooking, to hatchet throwing! Through challenges where you showcase what you've learnt, you'll be an expert by the time you hop back in your car. So hope you like a little friendly competition during this weekend of lumbertivities as you become a pro at surviving amongst the wild things.

Have I reeled you in? Maybe, well keep on reading!

Sipping on your morning brew as the sun rises, listening to the crackling sound of a campfire, the chirping of the birds, or the giggles of your friends - camping is a summer ritual in Canadian culture but one that truly allows you to get into a zen zone and uplifts your spirit. It rejuvenates you and some could say it is better than therapy!

Anyone who has sat around a campfire will agree that it is the most relaxing experience one could ever have. So whether you've been camping before but are a little rusty on your skills or a novice, no biggy - the Lumberjack Workshop Weekend is a great excuse to gather your friends and family to get reacquainted with those skills.
