Campers will be showing their Sask. pride with new Sask. Parks apparel

Local and visiting campers in Saskatchewan’s provincial parks will now be able to show off their Saskatchewan pride with brand-new apparel.

Saskatchewan Provincial Parks will offer custom-designed Sask Parks hoodies and t-shirts in time for the 2023 camping season in all provincial parks.

“Visitors have been asking about Sask Parks apparel for years, and so we are thrilled to be able to offer this in our parks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Laura Ross said.

“We are excited to be able to see people wearing their Saskatchewan pride on their sleeve.”

In 2021. Sask Parks, worked with the Ministry of SaskBuilds and Procurement and publicly advertised a merchandise collaboration opportunity. Saskamper Apparel was the pilot product out of the collaboration and was ultimately a success.

Sask Parks sold approximately 1,000 Saskampersweatshirts between May 2022 and September 2022 at Buffalo Pound, Candle Lake, Makwa Lake, Meadow Lake, Moose Mountain, Pike Lake, Rowan’s Ravine, and The Battlefords Provincial Parks.

Due to the success of the pilot project, Sask. Parks Apparel will be returning with brand-new designs and styles.

“As a local clothing company that specializes in outdoor clothing, it’s been an absolute dream come true to work with Sask Parks,” Saskamper Apparel owner Josh Turner said.

“I’m looking forward to expanding our partnership this year to offer new clothing designs and products throughout all provincial parks for campers to enjoy.”

The new clothing will be available in the spring of 2023.
