Camping Québec Announces Member Support for Creating Sustainable Development Strategies

Camping Québec announced support for its members in the development of sustainable action plans and climate change adaptation.

According to its website, this initiative involves a collaboration with ADDERE Service-conseil, a consultancy specializing in sustainable development, to launch a pilot project aimed at fostering eco-responsible practices. The project has successfully engaged a first cohort of seven campsites in creating tailored sustainable development action plans.

The campsites participating in this inaugural project include Camping La Rochelle in Mauricie, Camping Melbourne-Estrie in the Eastern Townships, Camping Parc de la Rivière Batiscan in Mauricie, Camping McKenzie Beach in the Eastern Townships, Camping Soleil in Chaudières-Appalaches, Camping Terrace Rougemont in Montérégie, and Chalets Lanaudière in Lanaudière. These sites were selected to lead the way in integrating sustainable practices into their operations.

ADDERE Service-conseil’s involvement was pivotal in guiding the participants through the nearly year-long project. The consultancy provided advice and created personalized tools to help each campsite assess its current practices and develop a sustainable action plan.

Feedback from the participants has been overwhelmingly positive, with many highlighting the value of the project in enhancing their commitment to sustainability. 

“The cohort of campsites with ADDERE allowed us to realize that we already had several sustainable practices in place. It also gave us the opportunity to take a step back, evaluate our actions, and structure them coherently,” Geneviève Goulet, co-owner of Camping Plage McKenzie, said, as quoted in the report.

Simon Tessier, president and CEO of Camping Québec, expressed satisfaction with the outcomes of the pilot project. The success has prompted Camping Québec to plan the establishment of two additional cohorts. Campsites interested in participating in these upcoming cohorts are encouraged to contact Camping Québec by March 30.

“Personalized support from a firm specializing in sustainable development combined with meetings allowing discussions with entrepreneurs who have implemented good eco-responsible practices within their tourism business and living with SD issues have enriched the company’s approach for which I work. The results of this experience: we now have a greatly enriched and improved sustainable development action plan and several inspiring models of good practices to continue our approach,” Linda Corbeil, director of operations at Chalets Lanaudière said.
