Summer is finally here and according to the "Old Farmer's Almanac", most of Canada will have a hot and dry summer! In a nutshell, here's what they predict; Atlantic provinces - above average temperature and above average precipitations except for Newfoundland & Labrador, BC - above average temperature and below average precipitations, Northwest Territories - below average temperature and above average precipitations, Ontario - above average temperature and below average precipitations, Prairies - above average temperature and above average precipitations, Québec - above average temperature and average precipitations, Yukon - below average temperature and normal - above average precipitations.

Some setup are simply large canvas tents with some furniture such as a chair and a bed while others offer more luxury such as the facilities at Siwash Lake Resort in British Columbia!
