With the weather finally warming after the deep freeze of the Polar Vortex, it’s safe to say that summer is, in fact, here. Many Canadians, however, are not—home, that is. With the abundance of nature and a shortage of summer within our borders, many of us head to a provincial or national park for a hike or to a remote lake for a few days of fishing. But some people seek to blend nature and summer into their seasonal holiday, and that means packing the car with tents, sleeping bags, over-stuffed coolers and plenty of water-proof matches for a weekend of camping in the woods. According to our 2014 BBM RTS Canada PRIZMC2Link, 20 percent of Canadians took a camping vacation in the past three years. In fact, camping is more popular than a trip to the cottage, going to a spa or embarking on a cruise.
