Its main principles

The goal of Camptocamp-Association is to promote the exchange of information between all who practice mountain sports. In continuation of the efforts initiated by the co-founders of the community sites skirando.ch and escalade.online.fr, the association adopts the following principles:

This principle can be developed at different levels: impact of informations disseminated by Camptocamp-Association on the mountain environment, use of open-source software, promotion of actions to the benefit of sustainable development, and respect and safeguarding of the mountain environment, etc…
  • use of open technologies and open content for the platform on which camptocamp.org is run, using licenses of the Free Software Foundation.
