Camp Oakhurst, established in 1906, is operated by New York Service for the Handicapped (NYSH), an independent non-profit social service agency with offices in New York City and Oakhurst, New Jersey.

NYSH provides out-of-home overnight respite (planned and emergency), summer sleep away camp, and day respite services to children and adults with special needs, including autism and physical and developmental disabilities. Our campus is fully accessible and barrier free for wheelchair users, including our heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, and many other adapted therapeutic recreational activities.

Camp Oakhurst is only about 55 miles south of New York City, but for the more than 800 children and adults with special needs who attend our programs each year, it feels like a long way from home–and that’s just the way they like it.
