Empowering camps, inspiring campers


Leveraging Research to Build a Case for Support

We want to provide education around the challenges and opportunities related to sustainability in the camp industry.  This research is a gateway to helping camps access the economic, educational and environmental benefits of sustainability, and the extent to which these benefits are currently being realized through sustainable practices.

Now More than Ever, Local Action Counts

Greening Camps across America

We help camps of all kinds, including summer camps and RV parks, to reduce their environmental impact and inspire the next generation of eco-leaders. As a nonprofit organization, Green Camps brings together folks from across the camping industry and beyond to lead in the green camps movement. Without a healthy natural environment, the camping experience wouldn't be what it is today. Together, let's ensure that future generations are able to enjoy it as much as we do!
