Camping Kits

Our West Red Deer County Coalition created and assembled camping kits to distribute in and around our four rural Alberta communities. Each kit was full of developmental activities that parents could do with their child while they were camping. The activities were written in child friendly language for families to read together. We distributed 250 kits throughout the summer. Many of the campgrounds that we dropped kits off at asked for more and shared accounts of seeing families playing at their campsites with the kits. We found this project a great way to engage with families and increase their knowledge of developmental activities that they can do at home, on the road or while camping.
