Camp Oakhurst is operated by the New York Service for the Handicapped and is accredited by the American Camping Association and licensed by the New Jersey State Department of Health.

Everyone, including children and adults who have physical disabilities, needs a vacation away from home. Camp Oakhurst gives our campers a fun-filled summer vacation in a place where it's easy to participate in activities, make friends, feel accepted, and gain independence.

Camp Oakhurst has an eight week summer program. The first six weeks are for children and teenagers between the ages of eight and nineteen. They have the option of attending for two, four, or six weeks. The final two weeks are for adults. Campers are grouped according to age, not disability. We have six camper cabins (three for males, three for females) each housing up to sixteen campers (about 95 total campers). Trained staff provide physical care assistance throughout the day. The camper to counselor ratio is no more than 3 to 1 and there is 24-hour nursing coverage on site.

The daily program at Camp Oakhurst includes many familiar activities like swimming, sports, arts, crafts, drama, music, dance, cooking, photography, nature programs, and much more. Our 15-acre facility is barrier free and includes a state-of-the-art, fully adapted gymnasium, and a fully accessible, heated swimming pool. All activities are tailored to the individual abilities of our campers. Our daily schedule is supplemented with special events and social outings to beaches, boardwalks, and other area attractions.
