Lesser Slave Lake Provincial Park

Alberta Parks

Discovery Packs

Discovery Packs can be rented on a per-day basis from the campground booth. Age recommendations are based on the complexity of the included Activity Books. We strive to include topical story books and non-fiction books that may be suitable for other age ranges for families with several children. Each pack includes activity books for one person; you can request more activity books from the booth staff at time of rental if you need more.

Astronomy Discovery Pack (Recommended for ages 10 and up)

Can you identify a constellation? Have you ever seen a shooting star? Camping provides a great opportunity to view the stars and other astronomical events. Rent an Astronomy Discovery Pack and explore the night skies at your own pace. Each backpack includes astronomy binoculars, field guides to the sky, story books, and an activity book. You get to keep the activity book when you return the Discovery Pack!

NOTE: Due to the long days of summer, your children will get the most out of this Discovery Pack if you are willing to wake them up when it's dark out for an extra special camping experience.

Birdwatching Discovery Pack (Recommended for ages 12 and up)

Provincial Parks are awesome places to spot wildlife! Rent a Birdwatching Discovery Pack and learn birdwatching basics while you're camping. Each backpack includes birding binoculars, a field guide to birds, story books and an activity book. You get to keep the activity book when you return the Discovery Pack!
