Green Sign Design Contest with Green Camps

Green Camps is hosting a contest where participants can design signs “that will inspire green behavior change”. As you know, sustainable living is very important to us at Gwynn Valley! How do we do this? Many of our campers, families, and staff are aware of our Farm to Table program which supplies 60% of the produce we consume and the fact that we recycle here at camp. Less widely known is that we heat 40% of the water used at camp through burning the wood that has fallen down on site; that our older program cabins are powered with car batteries, which limits the amount of electricity we use; and that we use low flow toilets and showers, which helps conserve water. Sustainability is a broad term that applies to many aspects of camp operations. 

If you feel inspired, please submit your own design before the contest ends on May 22 at 8pm! Be sure to tag Gwynn Valley! Contest rules and instructions to participate can all be found here: https://www.greencamps.org/signcontest/

Special thanks to Janey for submitting a design on behalf of Gwynn Valley already!
