This is a post I wrote a few weeks ago about greening our camp for the FJC called the Campfire:
How do you start a green camp, from the ground up? This is one of the questions we have set out to answer through the development of Ramah Outdoor Adventure at Ramah in the Rockies. As a brand new camp, we have had an amazing opportunity to put into place green practices that will become part of our camp tradition. As our summer draws to a close, I believe we have made steps in the right direction, but are still only beginning to become a truly “green” camp. Perhaps the most important two lessons we have learned is that greening a camp does not have to cost additional money, and that at times good intentions do not always translate into practical solutions.
