Marketing your camp with a “green” approach isn’t just a socially and environmentally responsible thing to do, but your customers and prospects expect it. Research shows the majority consumers worldwide prefer purchasing products and services from businesses and organizations with pro-environment reputations. What are you doing at camp to show your support for “green?”
At our summer camp (a beach and surf camp in Los Angeles), we make it a point to align ourselves with like-minded environmental groups inlcuding ocean conservation organizations. We’ve organized beach clean up days with our campers and discuss beach and ocean ecology with our kids. In an effort to become an entirely paperless camp, we’ve even stopped printing camp brochures and put all our info online.
