Park interpreters love sharing their passion for park stories and want to help you and your family make memories and inspire your connections with nature and history. Through a variety of programming they entertain, educate and help you discover all that Jasper National Park has to offer.

This week’s focus is on the Wabasso Campground located south of Jasper, on the Icefields Parkway, Highway 93. 

Wabasso Campground

Location: Campfire circle (bring a mug for hot chocolate)

Time: 7 pm

For thousands of years humans have been gathering around campfires to share food, music, and stories. Continue this tradition!

Bear Story Circle

Friday and Sunday

When it comes to bears, small actions can have a big impact! Join the story circle and find out how you can safely share habitat with the bears of the Rocky Mountains. Sing and listen to tales about Jasper’s most iconic animal resident, and what actions park visitors can take to ‘Keep Bears Wild’.

Caribou Campfire

Saturday

Campfires and music go together like caribou and Rocky Mountains. One wouldn’t be the same without the other. Caribou, grizzly bears and whitebark pine are just a few of the amazing species Parks Canada is working to protect here in Jasper. Join Jasper’s caribou interpreter around the fire to share stories, songs for all of the species at risk.

All park visitors are welcome to attend programs in the campground.

Other activities in Jasper National Park include evening theatre at Whistlers Campground; guided walks at Old Fort Point and the Athabasca Glacier (Columbia Icefield); and inspiring curiosity amongst our adventurous young Xplorers through active play. In town at the Jasper Heritage Firehall (behind the Information Centre) plays host to hands-on and interactive displays, kid focused activities, street theatre and Indigenous programs.
