This summer camp program is guided by a commitment to social justice and by the values of Courage, Health, Inclusion, Play, Stewardship, Family, Acceptance, Integrity, and Leadership.  Founded in 2000, Camp Ten Trees has long benefited from the involvement of campers, volunteer staff, and supporters from the Pacific Northwest, across the United States, and beyond.  For more information on registering for camp, volunteering, or otherwise supporting this non-profit endeavor, please contact Camp Ten Trees today!
