As a 501(c)3 non profit organization, we strive to make our programs available and affordable for as many families as possible. We are always balancing this with the expenses of operating a business, which includes our desire to hire and retain passionate, skilled, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. Unfortunately program tuition does not cover our costs. Funding through donationssupporting a camper, Friends of Through the Trees Memberships, sponsorships and events contribute to our scholarship fund and other expenses. We are grateful for every dollar that helps to sustain Through the Trees and our mission to guide others in meaningful nature immersion experiences.

    “Two days a week my 7 year old is completely unplugged, learning from nature, building relationships in a safe environment and every time I pick her up she asks if she can stay longer. I'm so grateful for the staff, the land, and the vision of this amazing program!”

Thank you to the patient, creative, and kindhearted staff who helped to make Maine summer even more special for our family.”
