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).
Ecosystem Restoration Camps are local living labs where campers work together with the local community to actively implement restoration strategies, while learning restoration techniques that can be applied in other areas too.
We envision a global network of Ecosystem Restoration Camps supporting the emergence of a fully-functional, peaceful, abundant, biologically diverse earth brought about through cooperative efforts for the ecological restoration of degraded lands. The impact figures below show the joint impact of all of the camps together (with or without funding from the foundations set up in support of the camps), as reported by the camps to our impact-data platform.
We will expand on the types of impact-statistics as more data is gathered.
Here are the published quarterly and year-to-date financials of Stichting Ecosystem Restoration Foundation and ERC USA Inc. These figures do not cover the individual budgets of each camp. Camps also have their own fundraising. Below, you will find the amounts the foundations have donated to the camps. The foundations aim to have 85% of the raised funds go directly to camps. After the end of each calendar year we publish a full and detailed annual report.
Income is received through individual supporters, institutional donors (such as philanthropic foundations and governmental subsidies), and corporate sponsorships.
Our expenditure is divided into four categories:
