Why Peak Camping?

Why Peak Camping?

Posted by Steph on 2020 Apr 21st

We are excited to start this new adventure as a family and grow our passion for camping and the outdoors through our amazing products. Thank you for your interest and support, we look forward to sharing our adventures and experiences with you on the Peak Camping Blog.

My love for the outdoors began at a young age while I grew up cottaging in Halliburton, Ontario. It seemed like every summer my parents would pack up our van and we would spend our whole summer holiday swimming, hiking, and running wild on the beach. Every year my father would take us on “The Dad’s Camping Trip” where we would meet up with his best friends and their kids to ride bikes, play games, and enjoy a more rugged outdoors experience in all it’s glory.

My husband grew up in Parry Sound where the outdoors was a huge part of his childhood. Spending endlessweekends hopping in the boat exploring Georgian Bay and the 30,000 islands. As a family they would camp a few times a year at Killbear Provincial Park and also do some backcountry camping on crown land in the area. 

When we first met each other we spent countless weekends at his family cottage on an island on Georgian Bay. Our time on the island included canoeing, boating, paddle boarding, hiking and of course the company of our friends and family. A few years later we began to build our lives in Collingwood, Ontario where we grew a passion for hiking. Exploring the Bruce Trail, Pretty River Provincial Park and other hidden gems on our weekends. The more we explored the beauty of Canada we realized that we wanted to share our experience with others and decided to start Peak Camping. 

Our family has grown now. We have a young son and we are eagerly sharing our passion for the outdoors with him. Stay in touch to hear about all the exciting family camping and outdoor adventures we experience this year.
