Nature Education: Did You Know?

Nature Education Resources

  • While we have seen a 10% increase in camps that offer environmental education programs, we have seen a 7,875% increase in camps that specialize in environmental education programs since 2001.
  • Camps are becoming increasingly "green," and are using green facilities, recycling programs, and other conservation efforts to educate campers.
  • Many camps are "going green" by building structures with partially recycled materials. 
  • Many camps create energy-efficient buildings, and will even seal off parts of the building during the winter so that they do not have to heat the whole building, therefore conserving energy.
  • Many camps attempt to transport their campers in a more environmentally-friendly fashion.  For instance, biodiesel-fueled buses used to transport campers are gaining in popularity.
