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.
“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
Kids are losing touch with 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.
