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.

Travel Respite (Ages 18+)

Journey to exciting out-of-state destinations with our hotel-based Travel Respites. We visit historical sites and famous landmarks, making our trips as educational as they are fun. Past trips have included such unique sights as Niagara Falls (Canadian side), the Grand Canyon, and historic Williamsburg, Virginia.

Participants have the opportunity to satisfy their wanderlust and gain a new perspective on the world. Our travel program is designed to accommodate adults of varying ability levels who require minimal to mild support and assistance with community based activities.

Hotel Respite (Ages 18+)

You don’t have to leave New Jersey to experience one-of-a-kind attractions. Our state has its fair share of historical sites and fun vacation destinations. From the relaxing beaches to the flashing lights of Atlantic City, New Jersey can be the perfect place to take some time off and enjoy yourself.

These trips are supported by funding from DDD Family Support Services and Real Life Choices. Trips are designed for individuals who require minimal to mild support and assistance with community based activities.
