At Green Camps, we believe that the journey to sustainability begins with a crucial first step – the Needs Assessment. This assessment is not just an initial checkpoint; it’s the bedrock upon which your camp’s sustainability efforts are built. By understanding your camp’s unique challenges, opportunities, and potential for eco-conscious practices, the Needs Assessment provides the clarity and direction needed to embark on the path to a greener future. It’s not just a survey; it’s the gateway to actionable insights, resources, and tailored recommendations to help your camp model sustainability effectively.

Our Needs Assessment is completely free, removing any financial barriers that might hinder your camp’s journey towards eco-conscious practices. But it’s not just about your camp; it’s also about the bigger picture. When you complete the Needs Assessment, you’re contributing to an ongoing research initiative. Your valuable insights help us better understand the unique challenges and opportunities camps face in becoming more sustainable, ultimately benefitting the entire camping community.

What is a Needs Assessment?

A Needs Assessment is an evaluation of your camp’s current practices, resources, and potential areas for improvement in terms of sustainability. This assessment helps us gain a clear understanding of where your camp stands on its sustainability journey. It’s like taking a snapshot of your camp’s environmental, economic, and educational practices. Through a series of targeted questions and assessments, we explore various aspects of camp operations, from energy consumption to waste management, from water usage to nature preservation. Think of it as a tailored roadmap that guides your camp toward a greener, more eco-friendly future. The Needs Assessment is designed to be both insightful and actionable, resulting in creating practical recommendations and insights customized to your camp’s unique circumstances.
