The Union Settlement Association was founded in NYC as a charitable organization to assist new immigrants and "settlers" of all races and ethnicities.

In 1917 the Union Settlement established three campgrounds in Palisades Interstate Park: Camp Nathan Hale for boys, Camp Gaylord White for girls and Camp Ellen Marvin for mothers and young children.The camps exposed tens of thousands of inner-city youngsters, from 1917 to the 1960s, to the natural world.
