At the end of April 2016, the campsite will organise a clean-up day in association with the organisation 'Keep Sweden Tidy'.

Around 30 refugees living in the area will be asked to assist, and they will work in groups of 4-5 people, lead by a local citizen. The plan is to clean up around hiking trails and tourist attractions. In addition, the campsite will introduce the refugees to Swedish nature and working habits.

The campsite already has some experience in organising cleaning days from former years.
