Campers Beautify Canada!

Charitree Foundation Canadian Camping Association Photos 3Reports from across the country confirm the many benefits of CCA’s Tree Planting Program. Plan to take part in 2016!

“As this was our 75th anniversary, the planting of these trees will help to make our camp even more beautiful for the next 75 years. The children also had a chance to plant one at home so this is an added blessing as they can watch their tree at home grow and enjoy the one at camp when they return each year.”
~ Lois Budd, UCW Rep, Camp Ta-Wa-Si, New Brunswick

“The interest and involvement of our campers in this annual experience is terrific and invaluable for them and for the environment.”
~ Jocelyn Palm, Director/Owner, Glen Bernard Camp, Ontario

“Trees are looking healthy after the summer. We’ll monitor them over the winter and look forward to their progress come spring.”
~ Breanna Heinrichs, Nature Instructor, Camp Assiniboia, Manitoba

“Our LIT students had a great time in the first week of July planting trees. This is enabling our camp to continue looking beautiful.”
~ Sean Cruickshank, Executive Director, The Quest at Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan
