We need your help.

At House In The Wood, at-risk youth are empowered to change the trajectory of their lives after meeting inspiring role models, strengthening their leadership abilities and developing essential life, social and academic skills. Thanks to support from neighbors and Chicago area businesses who support the North Shore Board of Northwestern Settlement's annual fundraiser, House In The Wood programs continually evolve to focus on campers' academic and social-emotional growth.



All donations directly benefit the House In The Wood camp, enabling more than 1,000 children from Chicago's most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods to experience outdoor education sessions with a STEM curriculum during the school year, and residential summer camp.
