At first glance out the window this morning, it’s likely that spring or summer are likely not top of mind, let alone camping (unless you are a winter camper, which is amazing in itself!). Despite March rolling in like a lion, spring is coming rather quickly and for those that have yet to notice, we have been making some big changes at the store ahead of the impending season.

Aside from our stellar line-up of backyard birding products that we have come to be known for, we are expanding our product offering to suit more of the outdoor lifestyles we all seem to have in common.

One such area is the great outdoors and camping. As a favourite pastime of ours for many years, we have been working with suppliers to get our hands on some of the industry’s best products for our valued clientele. While we certainly plan on expanding this offering, here’s a quick sampling of what is now available online and in-store for you!

Peregrine Gannet Tents

These tents are built to last and are great for both beginner and/or intermediate campers. Featuring a low-maintenance design and durable construction, these tents are guaranteed to be the least of your concerns on your next overnight trip into the great outdoors.

Available in two, three and four person sizes both in-store and online!

GSI Bugaboo Base Camper

When it comes to cooking in the wilderness, having the right cook set is always a great asset to have in your pack. Designed not only to withstand the elements with aluminum pot and frying pan, Bugaboo Base Camper Medium features a crush-free lid that prevents deformation and even comes with a cutting board for added convenience.

This set comes complete with a mesh stuff sack to keep you organized while you are on the move.

Campfire Grills

Truth be told, we are moving into our second season with these wonderful, Canadian-made camp grills. Constructed entirely of stainless steel, these foldable grills are easily packed up and moved wherever your trip takes you.

Available in both mini and regular-size configurations, test drive one in-store today (fire not included!).

Nalgene Bottles

When it comes to the best water bottles on the market, Nalgene has resided at the top of the list for quite some time. These durable plastic bottles are built for punishment and are great additions to any camping kit or pack.
