Joie de Vivre

Our name and our ethos are one in the same: Joie de Vivre!

An international group of Joiers (as we affectionately like to call ourselves), we join you from all over the world: France, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Ukraine, Canada, Norway, Korea, the United Kingdom, Australia, the good ole’ USA, and more!

This year, we invite you to join us for sustainability workshops each afternoon. At our camp, we’ll be offering a plastic waste upcycling solution that will turn waste into clean plastic flakes that can be upcycled to create useful products for campers. The interactive workshops will showcase how useful products can be created from plastic waste and take the notion of “Leave No Trace” to the next level!
