The Carbonfund.org Foundation is excited to announce a new endeavor into environmental education for children, through our purchase of Camp Quinebarge in New Hampshire. Quinebarge is in an idyllic spot, nestled in the heart of New Hampshire's lakes and mountains regions, sitting on 65 acres of forest and 1,250 feet of waterfront on Lake Kanasatka, in Moultonborough, NH.
Quinebarge is a traditional summer camp catering to up to 100 boys and girls ages 7-15, who live in rustic but clean (with electricity) cabins and enjoy activities such as archery, swimming, boating, horseback riding, hiking, camping, arts and crafts, sports, nature and environment, ropes course and zip line, to name but a few. There are camp fires, sing-a-longs, all-camp capture the flag and many traditions completely homegrown to Quinebarge.
Send your child to Camp Quinebarge this summer at our First Time Camper rate of just $500 per week.
Carbonfund.org is adding an environmental learning and activities aspect to Quinebarge, overlaying environmental themes throughout the regular, traditional camp activities Quinebarge already offers.
Since 1936, Quinebarge has been a great way for any kid to spend their summer. Carbonfund.org president and founder Eric Carlson went there as a child for eight summers in the 1980's and we're excited to carry on and expand the legacy of this wonderful place.
Please click this link to our two-page camp brochure and please forward this note to anyone who you think might be interested in sending their children to Quinebarge and benefit from our First Time Camper discount.
Camp Quinebarge runs for seven weeks from June 23 - August 10.
Thank you for helping to spread the word about Camp Quinebarge and this great new endeavor!
Carbonfund.org is pleased to announce that 2013 will bring big program anniversaries for about one hundred of our small business partners. The CarbonFree® Business Partnership program, launched in 2007, makes it easy and affordable for businesses of all sizes to enhance their sustainability by joining the program either at pre-set donation levels based on employee size, or by calculating and mitigating actual annual operational emissions. The program benefits include promotion of this environmentally responsible initiative through displaying the CarbonFree® Partner logo, maintaining a Partner Page on the Carbonfund.org website and being featured in online blogs and e-newsletters written by Carbonfund.org.
Our 5th and 6th year anniversary partners include the spectrum of businesses – healthcare/nutrition, eco-tourism, product retailers, technology service providers, and a variety of start-up product and service companies. What these businesses have in common is demonstrated leadership in a long-term commitment to ensuring that their products, services and operations are offered to their customers in the most sustainable way possible.
“When we designed the CarbonFree® Partner Program, we wanted to make it a very simple, easy-to-understand program that fit the budget of any business, regardless of age, size or industry,” explains Carbonfund.org founder and president Eric Carlson. “These one hundred businesses celebrating their 5th or 6th anniversaries help to confirm that we’re doing what we set out to achieve.”
In honor of the renewal anniversaries for these CarbonFree® Business Partners, Carbonfund.org developed a unique 2013 CarbonFree® Partner logo featuring the number of years the business has been in the program. We’re also planting trees on behalf of these anniversary Partners – 50 and 60 trees planted for the 5th and 6th anniversaries, respectively – as an additional way to acknowledge their long-term commitment to helping win the fight against climate change and supporting our carbon reduction projects around the world.
