Easterseals Camp is a week-long resident camp serving children and adults in the San Bernardino Mountains. Held at Camp Oakes, an accredited American Camping Association site, Easterseals’ camps offer children and adults with disabilities the same excitement and activities available at other camps.
For more than 40 years, campers and volunteers from all walks of life have come together for one magical week of camp. Activities include crafts, hayrides, talent shows, dances, swimming, canoeing, archery, hiking, concerts, storytelling, and a high and low ropes course.

"Going to camp opened my eyes and changed the person I was inside and out. I saw how everyone was being treated and I realized that all I wanted all these years was... to be treated like everyone else. This is the best experience I ever had." - Lora Glassman
