Global Forest Camp for Youths

AFoCO’s Global Forest Camps provide young participants with a memorable educational experience and help them connect with their natural environment through outdoor learning and hands-on activities.

Forests play a key role in maintaining the health of our planet and mitigating the negative effects of climate change. Educating our younger generation about forests and their importance is crucial in instilling an appreciation for forests and nature and ensuring that our forests continue to be protected and sustainably managed for generations to come. Informing the future generation about problems related to deforestation and climate change is also critical to safeguard our forests in the long run.
