History of JUMP! Canada:
Program cancellations as a result of the 2017 wildfires threatened the future of Educo Adventure School. Educo’s Board of Directors asked JUMP! to include Educo in their global network for programming. JUMP! was founded by a group of inspired Educo alumnus so the merger of Educo with JUMP! was the perfect fit!
As part of this process, Educo underwent a legal name change to JUMP! Canada Society. Although the name has changed the mission continues - to inspire youth through transformative wilderness experiences! We honour the Educo Legacy Community and welcome alumni with open arms to stop by the Educo site for a visit or join us at a work party!
Educo Site History:
We are grateful to live, learn, and teach on the traditional territories of the Secwepemc Nation.
Educo Adventure School was founded in 1969 as a nonprofit organization (later became a registered charity) focused on providing transformative experiences for people in the outdoors. Over the decades Educo grew to encompass a wide range of programming for youth from all walks of life, all based on building character, resilience, and self-confidence. Educo has a huge following of supporters that have been touched by the magic of the Educo site and the life-changing experiences from ropes courses and outtrips to the powerful moments of personal reflection and growth from learning to turn an obstacle into an opportunity!
