Help Thorne Ensure NATURE FOR ALL!

Across the country, low-income and Latino youth have less access to the outdoors. Your financial support helps ensure all youth in our community, regardless of race, ethnicity, or family income, have the opportunity to experience the joy and benefits of nature-based play.


Through the NATURE FOR ALL Initiative, Thorne awards more than $600,000 in camp scholarships and subsidized school programming to more than 7,000 youth, approximately 50% of our total participants, from low-income and Latino families each year.

With your support, Thorne can reach the youth in our community who need nature-based programming the most.
