Media Advisory: Story Idea for Canada Day Long Weekend

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 26, 2012) - In preparation for the Canada Day long weekend, Parks Canada gives you the opportunity to develop an original story that links technology and the Great Outdoors.

The Parks Canada "Learn-to-Camp" Smartphone app will help first time campers learn how to plan a camping trip, how to start a fire, how to set up a tent, and it can even help plan meals.

This story idea coincides with our July 1st offer of free admission to all our national parks and national historic sites of Canada.

Tamara Tarasoff, fully bilingual, led this project and will be pleased to share her passion for this new application developed by Parks Canada.
