Your commitment is to visit the site you have chosen once or twice a month to see if there is a problem of any kind. WE give you garbage bags to clean up a camping site, if any, that you dispose in a garbage bin. You should bring a shovel to bury «excrement» if any. Look for any tree cutting or mischievous behaviour and report it if any.
