The ChariTree Foundation – a children’s environmental tree planting charity founded in 2006 – has given trees to campers at Canadian Camping Association camps across Canada. Children at camps across Canada have planted nearly 100,000 trees through this unique partnership.
Every year ChariTree receives encouraging photos and reports from camps about the program:
“We successfully planted 300 saplings at Camp Wenonah in July this year! It was a unique experience for campers and staff alike, providing them with the opportunity to bond with nature and to contribute to the land of the Camp they all hold so dear. Every camper, ages 8-18, had the chance to plant a tree in the location of their choice- some groups even planted tree gardens near their cabins which they could revisit and watch with care. Thank you ChariTree Foundation for providing us with this wonderful opportunity.” – Janette, Assistant Director – Camp Wenonah
“We had lots of fun with this tree planting project. With a certified arborist on our team we made good use of the trees with strategic placement while making it a fun time for our campers.” – Derrik, Tripper – Lake Scugog Camp
You can join this excellent program that gives your campers the fun of planting their very own tree while beautifying your campsite and improving the environment for us all. This program is open to all Canadian camps, including those that planted trees in previous years.
Details on joining the program are sent by email to CCA camps each winter.
