What is One Camper One Tree?

One Camper One Tree is iD’s way of giving back.

iD Tech Camps donates to the Arbor Day Foundation for each camper that attends our summer technology programs, effectively planting one tree for every camper.  It’s pretty simple: One Camper One Tree.

Last year we planted over 20,000 trees – which means that not only did 20,000 students receive critical STEM education, but 20,000 students also learned what it is to make a difference in the world.  The trees were planted in Bayfield County Forest in Wisconsin, and will help reestablish forests lost to insect problems and clear-cutting.  They’ll also provide a habitat for Kirtland’s Warbler, an endangered bird species.  Not a bad byproduct for STEM education.

Why do we do this?  Because we care.  We’re a family company, and we’re always looking to the future.  As we give students hands-on experience with real-world technology skills, we want to make sure that their world stays green.

New Season, More Trees

This year, we plan to break our record and plant even more trees.  We’ve expanded our university summer camp locations and our summer course offerings, giving students even more choices. Our STEM education programs are among the most accessible – and entering a 14th season, the oldest – programs in the U.S.  The ultimate goal is to plant one million trees by 2015.

But we don’t stop at trees – our programs follow environmentally friendly practices like recycling and turning off computers when they’re not in use.  iD also gives campers the option to carpool to camp, connecting nearby families so that they can save fuel, time, and the earth.

So what can you do to help?  Go to camp.  Learn something cool.  Let iD plant a tree for you.

Here’s to a green future!
