Big Wave Camp's Mandate
Big Wave Camp offers a different kind of education: one of awareness, feeling, and connectivity. We learn to respect the earth and all life, enhancing our own and protecting our future.
Working with conservation and city parks
Big Wave Camp runs in Ontario's parks--across forest, waterways, lakes, beaches, clean air, trails, and open space. We follow each park's strict guidelines and therefore are given special permission to be in its premises. All of Big Wave Camp's activities ensure minimal environmental impact and leave the park ecosystem intact.
Taking action with other organizations
We take action through donations to various international environmental organizations, such as Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, 350.org, Avaaz, and Blue Voice. We also educate and spread awareness about these groups, support their campaigns, and attend their events. A portion of your camp registration goes directly to support these organizations. We researched these groups for their passion, integrity, and accountability--you may read more about them by clicking on their respective links.
Implementing environment policies
In keeping with our philosophy, we ask everyone to work together to have the least environmental impact as possible. We recommend that food and drinks be packed in healthy, reusable containers to minimize waste. We also recommend biodegradable products for our children's own benefit. A healthy earth equals a healthy you! We thank you for your support and effort--let us continue to make a difference.
