About Us and Our Mission

We are nature enthusiasts, captivated by all its raw beauty. As hikers, climbers, paddlers, bikers, and above all, campers, we believe there's no better way to truly immerse in nature than by sleeping under the open sky.

Our mission is simple: we want you to unwind, explore, and reconnect with the great outdoors.

To help you accomplish this, we pledge to:
  • Provide camping equipment of the highest quality.
  • Ensure all our equipment is clean and in good working order.
  • Facilitate an effortless pickup and drop-off rental process.
  • Offer impartial advice on camping in Western Canada to the best of our ability.
  • Share as much of our local knowledge as we can, and to be available for advice.
  • Make sure you have the best possible camping experience!

From Grassroots Beginnings

Over the years, we have hosted numerous international friends interested in camping. These friends were not keen on paying for or driving large RVs (motor homes). Therefore, we began searching for ways to rent a "typical car camping package". Unfortunately, we couldn't find any satisfactory options. They either consisted of a tent and a few basic mats or were of poor quality.

Rent-a-Tent Vancouver was launched in 2007. Our approach was so well received that we introduced a sister company, Rent-a-Tent Banff, in 2010. Today, we are collectively known as Rent-a-Tent Canada. The key to our continued success, even amid growth, lies in our personal touch.

We look forward to meeting you in Vancouver on the West Coast or Canmore, the Rockies. We really look forward to the stories you bring back to us!
