In summer 2016, campers across Canada planted over 13,000 trees provided by the ChariTREE Foundation. The Foundation is celebrating its 10th anniversary. CCA has partnered with the ChariTREE Foundation since 2009.

Comments from participating camps confirm the many benefits of this program include:

Thank you for this continuing opportunity. We value the focus The ChariTREE Foundation provides to involve our campers in forest sustainability. ~ Jocelyn Palm, Director / Owner, Glen Bernard Camp

There is something hopeful in the act of planting a tree. Our campers enjoy enhancing our habitats, increasing bio-diversity and just being in nature. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. You are growing hope for a greener future. ~ J. Rodenburg, Camp Kawartha

Thank you for your generosity and work as a charity. This is an incredible program for our camp, staff and campers. It is our 70th anniversary at Camp Couchiching so we are planting one of these trees in honor of each of our years in operation. Many thanks for being a part of this and contributing to our success this summer. ~ Ross McIntyre, Associate Director, Camp Couchiching

The trees we received from the ChariTree Foundation were planted during our Family Camp. Your donation is greatly appreciated as the Emerald Ash Borer has left many holes in our camp’s forest canopy. The White Spruce trees will help to replace the loss of our Ash trees. ~ Sarah Leitch, Camp Manager, Disciples Conference Grounds
