The ground may be covered in a white blanket of snow but we’re feeling greener and greener every day here in the Valley!
Progress Toward a Waste-Free Dining Experience!
As you know, we compost all of our food waste and we have a robust recycling program throughout camp. And now, thanks to support from our food service provider, Chartwells, as well as a new agreement with Ronnybrook Farm Dairy, our condiments are no longer offered in plastic containers and milk is no longer supplied in individual cartons. We’re currently researching the last few solutions necessary to offer our guests, campers, and school groups a dining experience that does not require throwing away anything in the trash.
LED Lights in Lodges!
The indoor lights in Bodman, Day, Kellogg, Hyde & Watson, Quirk, Kresge, Scott, Wolf, and Snow Lodges have all been replaced with LED lights. These lights cut the wattage used in half while also providing one third more light. Next, our maintenance team is working on installing LED lights in remaining lodges.
