Last month, we were delighted to contact 100 families in Durham, Wake, and Orange counties to let them know we would be able to offer a scholarship to their child to attend camp at Schoolhouse of Wonder this summer.
And last month, 300 more hopeful families who applied for scholarships received notification that their children would not be able to participate in Schoolhouse this year.
Too many of the Triangle’s families — particularly those from underserved communities — have financial barriers that prevent them from benefitting from Schoolhouse programs. Without a camp scholarship, summers for these children and teens will be less about discovering, exploring, and learning in the outdoors, and more about sitting inside watching television, playing electronic games, and zoning out with social media.
Help us create more tired, dirty, and happy children across the Triangle. Your tax-deductible gift of $300 — just $25 per month — would send a child or teen to Schoolhouse of Wonder for a week of discovering their best selves and developing a life-long connection to nature.
The timing couldn’t be better!
A Schoolhouse donor has stepped up and generously agreed to match, dollar for dollar, every gift made by July 1, 2019 up to $3,000.
That means every gift you make between now and July 1 will be doubled — and make twice the impact on our ability to provide summer camp experiences to children and teens who need us.
It’s easy to make your gift online via our secure website.

Every child that cannot attend camp without your help is grateful to you for allowing them to experience a Schoolhouse summer!
With much gratitude,
