Request trees for kids

“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

There’s never been a better time to teach kids that they can make the world a better place simply by taking an interest in their environment and making greener choices. If children are going to make a lifelong commitment to protect the environment for themselves and future generations, they first need time to explore the wonders of nature.

Kids are losing touch with nature.


Children in Nature

These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves. Let’s give kids GREEN POWER – the power to make the world a better place!

Children need trees and there’s so much to learn from nature. One of the best ways to learn about nature and the environment is to plant a tree of your own and watch it grow.

How to request seedlings:

* 2015 Tree Ordering for schools, camps and other children’s organizations will be announced in March 2015 with ordering to commence in April 2014. Right now we need to get some donors so we can pay for even more trees for children next year.  Follow Charitree on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
