With Canada’s Parks Day just passed, and as many British Columbians get ready for camping in the warmer weather, BC Parks encourages everyone to adhere to the Camper’s Code.
As per a report created in collaboration with a dozen B.C.-based organizations, the Camper’s Code provides nine rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable camping experience.
The code also includes pledges to make plans ahead, control pets, and respect the other campers by keeping their noise levels to a minimum and keeping the campsite clean so that it doesn’t attract wildlife.
“The goal of the Camper’s Code is to build more awareness about desired campers’ behaviors, educate new campers on acceptable behaviors and promote the sustainability of British Columbia as a destination for future generations to enjoy,” Jaime Cox, president of BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association, said in a statement.
