Students participate in TreeWise activities last summer.

TreeWise Summer Youth Program

TreeWise is Casey Trees’ nature- and place-based summer education program, developed to get youth ages six to 10 outdoors, interacting with and appreciating trees.

Youth participants engage in fun, hand-on activities and include scavenger hunts, leaf and bark rubbings, tree identification, water relays and more — and are all tailored to be age-appropriate.

Summer 2014 sessions run from June 23 to August 8. Groups may register for TreeWise format that best meets their needs and schedule.

Please note that all sessions:

  • take place outdoors rain or shine with the exception of times of severe weather or lightning
  • only occur on weekday mornings
  • require adult supervision and participation throughout

On-Site Sessions

Groups that have or are in close proximity to a public green space, such as a park or playground, with mature trees may request a TreeWise counselor travel to them.

Each session lasts one hour and is limited to 20 students. Three adult chaperones must be present and provide assistance throughout.

There is no program cost if your site is located within 25 miles of our headquarters. All other groups must pay a program fee.

All of our on-site sessions are full. Please contact kdesmond@caseytrees.org if you are interested in participating in the program.
