Young people start ‘journeys to sustainability’ at The Crossing, a not-for-profit permaculture camp. The sustainable design of the camp is the direct result of help from over 2000 young volunteers over 17 years.
A one group, one class camp
The Crossing is a unique not for profit camp designed for high school and college groups. The camp takes one class at a time on a program that can go from 4 to 10 days. Everyone contributes in the program journey to make it a great learning experience.
A permaculture camp
In establishing The Crossing the founders decided to design a camp to show clearly that conservation is not just what you do to repair and protect the natural environment, it’s also about what you use. A Permaculture design approach makes The Crossing efficient in the use of its resources. Permaculture at The Crossing is part of a holistic approach to conservation.
An International camp
International students visit The Crossing over 6 weeks of the year and do a range of conservation project tasks and activities. Permaculture design and permaculture ethics and principles shape the outcomes.
