Envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion – tog­e­ther with you

Ahoi Camp Feh­marn is a cer­ti­fied Ecocamp!

Since April 2024 our Ahoi Camp Feh­marn is now offi­ci­ally cer­ti­fied by ECO­CA­M­PING e.V. as an Eco­camp. We are very happy about that! Of course, we are aware of the spe­cial respon­si­bi­lity that comes with our loca­tion in a nature reserve. In ever­y­thing we do, our cen­tral con­cern is to have as little impact on our envi­ron­ment as possible.

We are actively com­mit­ted to pro­tec­ting the dunes, are invol­ved in plan­ting cam­paigns and offer regio­nal and orga­nic food. Our menu also includes a variety of vege­ta­rian opti­ons, and we con­sis­t­ently use recup ins­tead of pla­s­tic. We also invest in rene­wa­ble ener­gies such as solar ther­mal energy and carry out regu­lar CO2 balan­ces. Our com­mit­ment to a sus­tainable future is also reflec­ted in our Green-Rate and our insect hotels.

We are proud to have alre­ady imple­men­ted many mea­su­res and look for­ward to achie­ving even more tog­e­ther with our great team and you. Because for us, sus­taina­bi­lity is not just a cer­ti­fi­cate, but an ongo­ing commitment.

Let’s shape the future tog­e­ther – for the envi­ron­ment and for ourselves!

Tan­gi­ble and »green«. This is what we have to offer you:

  • Inte­res­t­ing dune pro­tec­tion excur­si­ons (for child­ren + adults). Atten­tion: Will be offe­red again from the 2025 season.
  • Our new »open-air labo­ra­tory« (dis­co­very and par­ti­ci­pa­tion for child­ren – in/at our con­s­truc­tion trai­ler). Expec­ted start in late summer/fall 2024.
  • A 10% green rate for you if you arrive by e‑car or bike
  • Many sus­tainable + orga­nic pro­ducts in our minimarket
  • You will find e‑charging sta­ti­ons on our site in the future
  • Purchase of a new bio­lo­gi­cal was­te­wa­ter tre­at­ment plant
  • Instal­la­tion of water-saving taps in sani­tary facilities
  • Clea­ning of sani­tary faci­li­ties only with eco­lo­gi­cally tes­ted detergents
  • Use of solar coll­ec­tors for hot water in sani­tary facilities
  • Gree­ning of the square with native plants that require little watering
  • Our restau­rant and café have eli­mi­na­ted dis­posable tableware.
  • Dune grass plan­ting campaigns
  • Coöpe­ra­tion with the energy con­sul­ting com­pany »Weco­lo­gic« to iden­tify poten­tial impro­ve­ments for our site at an early stage.

The inves­ti­ga­tion and rese­arch labo­ra­tory is finan­ced by us and ope­ra­ted tog­e­ther with »Haff und Huk e.V.« and the Feh­marn Island School. It enables child­ren and school clas­ses to explore and under­stand nature through work­shops such as adven­ture hikes on the beach fol­lo­wed by microscopy.

The open-air labo­ra­tory is expec­ted to go into ope­ra­tion in late summer/autumn 2024.

Since the foun­da­tion of »Ahoi Bul­lis Cam­per­ver­mie­tung GmbH« in 2015, the energy con­sul­ting com­pany »Weco­lo­gic« (then still under the name »Ark­tik«) has been sup­port­ing us in the areas of sus­taina­bi­lity and cli­mate protection.
One of the first mea­su­res we imple­men­ted tog­e­ther with »weco­lo­gic« back in 2015 was car­bon balan­cing and the sub­se­quent off­set­ting of green­house gas emis­si­ons from our ren­tal vehic­les. In this con­text, we have jointly sup­ported a high-qua­­lity Gold Stan­dard cli­mate pro­tec­tion pro­ject in Kenya for seve­ral years, which pro­vi­des access to clean drin­king water in rural regi­ons. We also focu­sed early on trans­pa­rent com­mu­ni­ca­tion of our cli­mate pro­tec­tion mea­su­res, not least to make our cus­to­mers aware of the advan­ta­ges of choo­sing regio­nal desti­na­ti­ons (e.g. Schles­­wig-Hol­stein, Meck­­len­­burg-Wes­­tern Pome­ra­nia, Lower Sax­ony, etc.) in order to pro­mote vaca­ti­ons wit­hout cli­­mate-dama­­ging air tra­vel. In 2021, »Weco­lo­gic« also took on the task of sup­port­ing »Cam­pers Fri­end GmbH« in deve­lo­ping a com­pre­hen­sive sus­taina­bi­lity con­cept for »Ahoi Camp Feh­marn«. In addi­tion to num­e­rous mea­su­res for resource and energy effi­ci­ency, this also meant imple­men­ting a cli­mate manage­ment sys­tem for the annual moni­to­ring of the cor­po­rate car­bon foot­print of the entire camp.

You can also get involved:

  • Waste sepa­ra­tion: in the cam­per: wet vs. dry | at our waste island: yellow/blue/brown/black
  • Purchase more unpacka­ged + regio­nal food + organic/hard soap, orga­nic Toi­let addi­ti­ves etc.
  • Lit­ter coll­ec­tion cam­paigns on the beach for child­ren and adults with a small thank you
  • Use of Recup/Rebowl

What else we have planned:

  • Trans­forming the cen­tral waste faci­lity into an edu­ca­tio­nal island to teach the importance of recycling
  • Green roofs
  • Try to mini­mise public light­ing when cam­ping. Use of down­light­ing warm white LEDs and motion detec­tors to pro­tect insects, birds, bats, fish and amphibians.
  • Nature and envi­ron­men­tal edu­ca­tion work­shops for our youn­ger guests
  • Deve­lo­p­ment of a con­ser­va­tion and sus­taina­bi­lity plan, inclu­ding moni­to­ring of dune pro­tec­tion by an exter­nal company.
  • Con­s­truc­tion of eco-toilets
  • Does your elec­tri­city come from the socket? We would like to feed in: Green elec­tri­city from pho­to­vol­taic cells
  • Use of rainwater
  • Sup­port for cli­­mate-fri­endly projects
  • Cli­­mate-fri­endly »volun­tou­rism programs«
  • more

Do you have any great ideas about what else we can do tog­e­ther? Then write to us at moin@ahoi-camp-fehmarn.de.
We look for­ward to hea­ring from you.


Camp­si­tes that are com­mit­ted to sus­taina­bi­lity can now hardly avoid the Eco­ca­m­ping label. We have held the »Eco­ca­m­ping site« award since April 2024.

Who or what is ECOCAMPING?

Cam­ping is a vaca­tion in nature, ECO­CA­M­PING is a vaca­tion with nature. ECO­CA­M­PING has been advi­sing and sup­port­ing camp­si­tes on their way to grea­ter sus­taina­bi­lity for more than 25 years. Sus­tainable com­pa­nies are cha­rac­te­ri­zed by sus­tainable, envi­ron­men­tally fri­endly and soci­ally respon­si­ble busi­ness prac­ti­ces. Com­bi­ning eco­nomy and eco­logy in the cam­ping indus­try is the basic idea behind ECOCAMPING.

How big is the ECO­CA­M­PING network?

Today, over 200 camp­si­tes with 12 mil­lion over­night stays per year have an ECO­CA­M­PING award. This means that three to four mil­lion peo­ple a year go on sus­tainable vaca­ti­ons cer­ti­fied by ECO­CA­M­PING – that’s a lot!

The ECO­CA­M­PING net­work stands for vaca­ti­ons in harm­ony with nature. To receive the ECO­CA­M­PING award for exem­plary com­mit­ment to envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and nature con­ser­va­tion, camp­si­tes must meet cer­tain cri­te­ria. Tog­e­ther with ECO­CA­M­PING, the award-win­­ning camp­si­tes then make an important con­tri­bu­tion to safe­guar­ding the basis of life for pre­sent and future generations.
Com­bi­ning eco­nomy and eco­logy in the cam­ping indus­try is the basic idea behind ECO­CA­M­PING. Sus­tainable camp­si­tes are the­r­e­fore cha­rac­te­ri­zed in par­ti­cu­lar by sus­tainable, envi­ron­men­tally fri­endly and soci­ally respon­si­ble management.
