Chewonki Foundation: Creating Environmental Stewards


In this short film, GLP Films visits Chewonki in Maine. Originally founded in 1915, Chewonki began as a summer camp for boys on the shores of Lake Champlain. However by 1962, the camp had evolved into what is today a year-round, non-profit educational institute that spearheads several environmentally progressive programs.
With a focus on sustainability and natural history instruction, Chewonki seeks to inform a lifetime of responsible behavior by actively involving participants as environmental stewards. Chewonki enjoys several awards, including the 2009 GreatNonprofits Green Choice Award as well as the Green Champion Award from Clean Air Cool Planet.
