Part 1

Directions: Read the following informative article.

A. Canadians love doing outdoor activities. There is something fun and interesting to do in every season of the year, in every part of this country. One of our favourite outdoor summer activities is camping. Millions of Canadians enjoy camping in national and provincial parks, as well as in privately-owned campgrounds, every year. From coast to coast, there are camping facilities that range from simple to full service. If we can keep the following few points in mind while we are camping, we can maximize the enjoyment of the experience, for ourselves, and for others.

B. One very important point to keep in mind when we are camping is that we are most often in an area of wilderness. We should be aware that this wilderness is home to plants and animals. We should be careful not to disturb their environment. Basically, we are uninvited guests in their home, so we should do all we can to minimize our impact. For instance, we should never litter the area with our garbage. We should also read the signs and warnings regarding such information as bears in the area. One extremely important point to keep in mind is to never try interacting with wild animals. Each year, dozens of people are injured or even killed because they do not heed this advice.

C. Fires are one of the most destructive forces. They can be caused naturally, such as by a lightning strike, or by humans. One careless camper who has forgotten to put out a campfire can be responsible for burning down an entire forest. Every year, forest fires occur by the hundreds due to natural and human causes. That is especially true in western Canada, where thousands of hectares of forest are destroyed through fire annually. It is therefore imperative that, assuming there is no campfire ban in place, you ensure you campfire is extinguished properly before leaving your campsite. Diligently ensuring that the fire is absolutely out cannot be overstated.

D. One more important point to remember is that all campers, including you, are there for an enjoyable experience. Nobody wants to camp next to a noisy, rude group of people. It can turn a pleasant weekend experience away from the city into a miserable memory. For that reason, you should think about the campers around you, and keep the noise to a minimum. If you can keep this point, and all the points mentioned in this article, in mind, you and all other campers will have a wonderful camping experience.
