In 2021, some camps are organising camp experiences for you to participate in. We are hopeful that they will be able to go ahead. Camps will follow the local conditions closely, and may have to cancel activities if the local COVID-19 situation forces them to do so. If you have already signed up for a camp-activity you will be informed when this happens. We will update the website also, when such decisions are taken. Please check your own local authority travel advisory to see if you can travel to or return from the camp after the activity. At all times, when at camps, please observe it’s COVID-19 policy (such as wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands, etc).
EcoCamp Coyote is located on one acre of a former sod farm on extremely degraded soil, in a semi-rural area facing development due to its proximity to major highways and urban areas. Together, as a small community living off-grid, we are regenerating the former sod farm with manure, woodchips, and vegetation and utilizing the waste stream to build structures and restore the land.
At Ecocamp Coyote, we have enjoyed campouts, project days and a even a virtual camp! Together, we have established a native hedgerow, food forest, no till gardens, rainwater catchment, off grid energy systems, biodigesting toilets, and much more.
We have also planted over 60 trees, are raising 100’s more in our nursery, and have hosted over 100 guests & campers.
Expect tasty organic vegan meals cooked on an antique wood stove, biogas or solar-electricity, hands on learning opportunities, large dogs, eclectic conversations, speeding trains, camp fires, views of the mountains and beautiful sunsets, and the thrill of living off grid.
Researchers, plant enthusiasts, nursery specialists, mechanics, carpenters, outreach coordinators, organizers, community liaisons, and anyone with a desire to contribute.
Nature hikes nearby.
We envision being a community fixture for distribution and education of post-petroleum energy, food forestry, appropriate infrastructure and building materials, as well as ecosystem restoration and permaculture.

Your safety is very important to us. Most camps are in locations that are completely safe for you to travel to. Some camps are in locations where there is civil unrest, higher levels of crime, or in areas where there could be severe nature events (earthquakes, tornados, vulcanic eruptions). We strongly advise you to check with your national authority’s travel advisory service to see if there are specific travel advisories for the region you are travelling to. We strongly advise you to comply with that travel advisory. If there is a negative travel advisory for the area you plan to go to, we want to impress on you that it is your decision to not heed the warnings and go. ERC can then not be liable in that situation if something happens to you.
Work at camps is usually safe. The camp coordinators make your safety their highest priority too. But you will be working with tools and sometimes even (heavy) machinery. Sometimes the terrain can be slightly treacherous. Heat or cold can become a problem for people at work that do not take the necessary measures to prevent injury from weather conditions. Especially in remote locations, all people at an Ecosystem Restoration Camp will need to watch out for eachother’s safety. For this reason we ask you to also sign our Code of Conduct, through which you commit to contributing to a safe environment at camps for all that are there with you. Take yours and all other camper’s safety seriously! Together, while watching over eachother, we can restore our ecosystems safely and successfully.
