Camp Ethics

Our hope is that Camp Nemo will be an attractive outdoor experience for many generations to come. All it will take is for all visitors to keep in mind the seven principals of “Leave No Trace” ethics at all times.


1. Plan Ahead and Prepare 

Planning how to reduce your impact before you head to camp is a good start.

2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

Stay on trails as much as possible and work to minimize damage to the environment when off trails. Cutting the corners on switchbacks means increased erosion so it is important to stay on the trails here.

3. Dispose of Waste Properly

Please put all garbage in the bins by the parking lot and take recyclables home with you.Please make sure the toilet seat lid is down when you leave a KYBO.  The KYBO won’t smell.

4. Leave What You Find 

B.P. is quoted as saying “Take only memories, leave only footprints.” 

5. Minimize Campfire Impacts 

Fire pits and rings need to be cleaned out occasionally. If wood is burned completely down to ash the pits rarely need to be cleaned out so please don’t extinguish your fire unless you have to.There should be no trace of a fire left at a “Leave No Trace” campsite. If you are camping in these sites and don’t know how to build a “Leave No Trace” fire then please get someone to show you or don’t build a fire.

6. Respect Wildlife

Camp Nemo is teaming with wildlife. Everything from deer to coyotes to trout. The camp is home to these creatures and we are their guests so we must learn what appropriate behaviour is.

7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors
