Camp Westminster on Higgins Lake Receives Green Leaf Seal

Detroit, MI – Camp Westminster on Higgins Lake received the Green Leaf Seal from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Environmental Ministries and the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association. This honor speaks to the great commitment that Camp Westminster on Higgins Lake has to environmental stewardship.

To receive the Green Leaf Seal, camp and conference centers must have completed a total of five projects or activities related to environmental stewardship in the areas of facilities, education/program, operations, and outreach.

The Green Leaf Seal is designed to recognize camp and conference centers that care for God’s earth by practicing sustainability and educating guests about environmental stewardship.

“Presbyterian camp and conference centers are the perfect places to make connections between our faith and caring for God’s earth. Camp Westminster on Higgins Lake has taken great strides in environmental stewardship, and it is exciting to recognize these accomplishments,” says Rebecca Barnes-Davies, Associate for Environmental Ministries.

The Green Leaf Seal is a program of PC(USA) Environmental Ministries in cooperation with the sites of the Presbyterian Church Camp and Conference Association (PCCCA). Environmental Ministries works to inspire and equip Presbyterians to work for eco-justice for all of God’s earth. PCCCA equips leaders for ministries of discipleship, community building and the care of Creation.
