Our mission

Ekocamp International

Ekocamp International is a privately funded company. Our site benefits both from its proximity to the wilderness of the Parc du Mont-Tremblant and to the metropolitan amenities of Montreal. Ekocamp International was born with the vision of bringing youth together from around the world, to work and play together in harmony and security. The founders felt that, as we move towards an increasingly international, interconnected and global community, Ekocamp could help to prepare youth to play a positive role in this brave new world which they will soon inherit.

To achieve this, Ekocamp concentrates on skills training, with special emphasis on language, cultural understanding and tolerance. At the same time, it fosters a love for and familiarity with the world of nature. The ‘global village’ is already an integral part of our daily living. Whether it is the fruit we eat, the coffee we drink, the gas which powers our cars, or the splashy T-shirt on our back, our quality of life is increasingly interconnected with the health of a multitude of communities around the world.

For the next generation this will be even more true, as country after country joins the global economy. Language is the doorway to understanding the infinite variety of human cultures; understanding culture is the key to tolerance; working and playing together are the means through which culture and tolerance are given a human face and then extended through friendship.

Refund policy

In the event that you wish to cancel your child’s registration at Ekocamp, simply write and let us know. We will immediately refund the total amount paid, less the sum of CAD$250 for administration purposes, if we are notified of this cancellation six weeks prior to the start of your child's camp stay. If applicable, the request for reimbursement should include a letter from the Canadian embassy stating that the visa has been cancelled or was never issued.

If notification of cancellation is not provided at least six weeks prior to the start of camp, no amount will be refunded, unless: a camper is unable to attend camp for medical reasons, upon production of a medical certificate and if the camp is notified at least three weeks prior to the session. Ekocamp will then reimburse 50% of total fees paid. The medical certificate, signed by a physician, should explain the medical condition of the camper and state that this medical condition prevents the camper from attending a summer camp. No refund will be made if camp is notified less than three weeks prior to the start of the session. Parents may decide to subscribe to a cancellation policy to cover this eventuality.

There will be no refund in case of expulsion following a breach of the camper’s rules of conduct; if, in Ekocamp’s opinion, his/her actions or attitude are detrimental to the best interests of other campers; if a parent/guardian removes a camper from camp early or if the camper leaves camp for any other reason. Ekocamp will not be held responsible for any associated transportation fees, whether incurred due to airline policies or otherwise, of a camper who has been expelled. Such fees are the responsibility of the camper’s parents or guardians.
