Day 1,217: Accessible Camping

Madison and Jack just got back from 3 days of camping and loved every minute! They ventured north to Six Mile Lake Provincial Park for a weekend full of swimming, s’mores and board games.

This was our first time booking an accessible site at a provincial park and it was a fantastic experience! The campsite had a concrete slab with accessible washrooms and showers nearby. We had an accessible picnic table which Madison loved. The majority of the paths that lead to the beach and other areas to explore were paved with no stairs and Ontario Parks offers discounted rates with an accessible parking pass. Madison did an amazing job navigating the different surface in her canes.

We have plans to visit 3 other Provincial Parks this summer in our camper. We decided this would be a better option for Madison’s mobility and we were right – she was able to be independent in the space we had and did great!

Madison and Jack swam lots, played in the sand, explored the grounds, ate lots of popcorn & s’mores and played Kirplunk and Bingo. They learned how to build a fire, they did their dishes in a bucket after meals and slept like champs through a massive thunderstorm.

It was an awesome weekend exploring the beauty of our province and spending some much needed family time together.
