Location and Transportation

For 2019, Maple will once again be held at the Ecology Retreat Centre in Mono, Ontario. The ERC is situated in a quiet wood with a babbling brook, walking trails, and open meadows. Meals are prepared by ERC chefs, who specialize in vegan and vegetarian cuisines in addition to omnivorous options. All diets will be happily provided for. You can read more and view pictures on ERC’s own website.

Maple does not provide transportation to and from camp. Carpools are sometimes organized from cities such as Toronto, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Chicago. To connect with a carpool, like our Facebook page and we will do our best to help you find other families in your area to travel with. Parents should anticipate the added cost of renting a van, or paying a driver, if they are unable to drive their own child. It’s best to make travel arrangements 6-8 weeks before camp. Please also make sure you are aware of the necessary border documentation if traveling from outside Canada. United States Immigration updates their policies frequently. Passports are highly recommended for all U.S. travelers but are required* to enter the U.S. for those 18 and older.

*An exception is possible for children traveling with a religious group. Contact us via Facebook if you aren’t able to get a Passport.
