As a result of the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, we are unfortunately unable to offer in-person camp services this 2023 Season. We will continue to plan for a safe return of all our campers in the seasons that follow. We are actively looking at camp facilities and activities to ensure we have the best and safest environment for socialization and recreation. From our “heart” to yours.

Three at Camp Merry Heart

An accessible camp for people with disabilities and special needs

Our 123-acre, fully accessible camp in Hackettstown, NJ offers year-round programs in a beautiful setting that is both safe AND fun for children and adults (6 – 96+). With the support of our dedicated staff we provide activities that encourage inclusion and bring campers together in a way that promotes personal growth and accomplishment.

Our overnight camp allows for weekend, full week, and two-week sessions all year long. It’s a time for campers to bolster their self-esteem and independence while having fun. This allows caregivers to take some time for themselves while knowing their loved one is both safe and making memories that will last a lifetime.

Activities include:

  • Swimming
  • Fishing
  • Boating
  • Splash pad
  • Games
  • Biking
  • Hiking
  • Challenge courses
  • Zip lining
  • Arts & crafts
  • Gardening
  • Team sports
  • Rock climbing
  • Karaoke
  • Dancing
  • Talent shows
  • and much more!
