The Special Kids Network Teen Camp

Held at Niles North High School in Skokie, Keshet campers (ages 11 through 21) may participate in an eight-week, age-appropriate program highlighting fun summer activities and engaging community trips, while at the same time, focusing on increasing levels of autonomy.

A special part of Teen Camp is the opportunity to experience the fun of overnight camp at the Perlstein vacation resort, located on the grounds of Camp Chi in Lake Delton, Wisconsin.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
