Stormhaven and High Dump are the two backcountry camping areas in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Located along the Bruce Trail on the scenic Georgian Bay shoreline, they offer a tranquil camping experience in a beautiful and remote setting.  It would be great to hike into the campsite and set up camp for a night and set off the next day for the next campsite.  To spend an extra day exploring the caves and swimming and exploring the Grotto, Overhang Point and Flowerpot Island.  After the adventure it would be nice to take the Chi-Cheermaun over to Manitoulin Island.

I’ve always wanted to explore this part of Ontario and I’ve never been north of Blue Mountain before.  I think the kids would love it since we will have to carry our gear so we will pack light and be creative with our food.

Already starting a Notebook in Evernote with gear needed and ideas and resources.

We need to go camping as a group.  I have a two room 10 man tent that we could share and we need to book a week and head up and visit 2 Provincial Parks and experience cooking outside and trying get the kids to be more independent and be responsible.

I’ve started talking to my kids about it and where we could go.  I’ve started to talk to my Nephew about it and where we could go.  This summer we could not line it up do to his son in lacrosse.

I want to get my kids to make a campfire, cook a dinner for us, set up the tent by themselves, jump off rocks and into the water, explore the forest and go hiking and learn navigation with a compass.

We are looking for the Summer of 2016
