Zero Waste Camps

Since 2008, municipal day camps have been invited to participate in the Zero Waste Camps project. The objective is to reduce or eliminate the amount of waste generated by camp activities.
Why educate children at day camps about sustainable development? Because the environment never goes on vacation. It’s never too early to get little ones interested in issues that will have tremendous impact throughout their lives.

Monitors in Zero Waste Camps lead activities that help children understand environmental principles and adopt simple gestures that foster environmentally respectful behaviour

Parents are also encouraged to adopt environmentally conscious practices (such as when preparing their child’s lunch).

Twenty-five municipal day camps (each with a capacity of around 4,000 children) have joined in 2010. There may be one near you!
