A one-size-fits-all approach to sustainability is ineffective. Instead, Green Camps developed a unique approach to facilitate any camp in creating a framework that will define what sustainability means and looks like while building a culture of sustainability to create long-lasting change.
All organizational memberships include the resources to guide you through the certification process, but higher levels include additional support and benefits.

As we move out of the pandemic camps are eager to reinvent themselves and find new and innovative ways to support the development of their campers and secure the future of their camps. The camp industry as a whole has a great opportunity to benefit from becoming a national model for sustainability to leverage new funding opportunities, new programs and new relationships/partnerships with their community.
The Green Camps Certification program was designed to answer the question Green Camps set out to answer when it was founded in 2014, by educator/trainer/facilitator Danny Sudman. Our innovative certification program guides any camp through the process of building a unique framework that will establish or build upon their sustainability efforts to create long-lasting impact.
Sustainability can be intimidating, especially if you are going about it alone or don’t have the direct support of your team. The community of sustainability and camp professionals that make up our membership will provide encouragement and support as you take on the challenge of discovering the opportunities around sustainability for your camp.
We’d love to hear from you to learn how we can support your sustainability goals.
