Pass the s’mores! Last week you showed us how you do rugged in a province that boasts over 100,000 lakes. Hint: It’s not particularly hard. You know what IS hard? Trying to pick the best #exploremb camping pics from all the adventurous ones you posted! It’s enough to drive a person to…grab their gear and hit the road.

The three finalists for the ⛺️ Camping Adventures ⛺️ challenge are…

Matthew Sawatzky (@mattjsaw)

By the looks of his feed, camping is Matthew’s favourite. He has the ultimate outdoor pics that are encircled and enriched by good friends, fresh food and those memorable moments that always make you go “Oh yeah, that’s why camping is the cat’s meow.”

Fun with the fam and new gopro at booster lake:)

Kristen Morgan (@kristenrhubarb)

Kristen says adventure is her passion and her camping photos back that up big time. Her pics will make you want to go forth and break new ground to enjoy our backyard in its most natural and rugged form. Don’t forget your canoe!

Jenn Yablonowski (@jenn.yablonowski)

Jenn knows how to bring the beauty to camping. Her photos have a cozy, unhurried feel to them. Also, her “glamping” beer can candle holders should be featured on Pinterest.

Congratulations, Matthew, Kristen and Jenn, you all win an #ExploreMB Instagram Moments book and are now finalists for our Instagram trip to Churchill.
