Support Through the Trees

Thank You for Supporting Through the Trees!

 

Support Through the Trees

At Through the Trees we invite and gently guide children, teens, families and adults to connect with the wonders of nature by providing transformational experiences that awaken and enliven the mind, body and soul. You can support Though the Trees by making meaningful contributions to help us with our mission.

We are continuously balancing the costs of running a business and making programs affordable, supporting Maine's economic diversity as much as possible. Financial support stays local and helps us in these key areas:

Youth Scholarship Fund: Through the Trees provides partial scholarships for our Youth Nature Immersion Program to families who need assistance. The TTT Youth Scholarship Fund allows more families and children to access and participate in our year-long and summer programs. We now annually serve over 300 children in Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin and Knox counties. Currently one-third of our participants are receiving scholarship support, which equates to approximately $7,000 awarded per month.

Program Costs: Our goal is to hire and retain skilled, knowledgeable and passionate staff who love being outdoors in all weather with children, teens, adults and families. Many of our staff are trained as Registered Maine Guides with us, an additional expense. Our amazing team members work hard and paying our team a decent living wage is important to us. As the demand for nature programs for children and teens grows each year, we try to meet this demand by expanding programs and hiring new staff. Supplies for our programs include ATV maintenance, tarps, rope, art items, first aid items, saws and other tools, food, books and much more!

    “Through the Trees has been a one of a kind experience for my son. The staff have fostered a connection with nature, social relationships and the building of confidence and self esteem by allowing my son to truly participate in his learning. His confidence since joining TTT has exploded as has the pride he feels about his own, innate abilities. It is truly a unique and wonderful place!”

    “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! ”
