Location and Transportation
Maple will once again be held at the Ecology Retreat Centre (ERC) in Mono, Ontario (near Orangeville).
The ERC is situated in a quiet wood with a babbling brook, walking trails, and open meadows, as well as a pool, pond, and labyrinth. 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.

Camper arrival at camp should begin at 4:00 pm EDT on July 8 to allow for travel time. Departure time will be 9:30 am on July 14.
Maple does not provide transportation to and from camp. Carpools are often organized from cities such as Toronto, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Chicago. To inquire about a carpool, reach out through our contact page or post on 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 contributing to transportation expenses 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. travellers 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 in advance if you aren’t able to get a passport.
