Creation Care

Here at Walter Scott, we are committed to caring for God’s Creation. This is expansive work that is not just about switching to greener ways of doing the things we already do, but thinking about our relationship with the environment, our spirituality, and the responsibilities we have to know and be known in the place we are. This page is a repository of the ways we are living into this commitment at Walter Scott through the actions and initiatives of our Green Team, Camp Hosts, and many others.

“Going Green”

  • Planting vegetable gardens to share with the community
  • Composting at Walter Scott
  • Switching to fair trade coffee and tea
  • Planning an energy audit to be more responsible and aware of our energy usage
  • Switching from liquid detergent in large plastic packaging to detergent sheets in packaging that we compost on-site
  • Switching to brown (unbleached) paper products which are composted on-site when feasible
  • Creating ecology and environmentally focused activities for CCIW Summer Camp Usage
  • Partnering with Faith-in-Place to convert grass under power-lines to native prairie
  • Sending recycling back with visitors to camp while services are unavailable in our area
