The restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic are proving to be the “perfect storm” for us.

At this point in time, it is not possible to effectively plan the safe, fulfilling, and meaningful camp experience that we pride ourselves on delivering every year.

We regret to inform you that Oak Hill’s summer 2020 camp programming, at both Hemlocks and Harkness, is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand that you may be disappointed. So are we. We can only hope that everyone will continue to focus on maintaining their health and safety. We will look forward, with great excitement, to Summer 2021 and hope you’ll plan to join us then.

If you still would like to speak with us, please don’t hesitate to contact Oak Hill’s Director of Camps and Recreation Jillian McCarthy at

Jillian.McCarthy@oakhillct.org or 860-228-0393 ext. 4068

FAQs coming soon!

 Easterseals of Oak Hill Camp Hemlocks:

two friends fishing at the lakeEasterseals of Oak Hill Camp Hemlocks is an accessible, residential summer camp for youth and adults with physical, sensory, intellectual, and developmental disabilities in the scenic woods of Central Connecticut. Camp Hemlocks offers a traditional camping experience for campers as young as eight and there is no aging out, allowing campers to attend into adulthood. Activities include swimming in our indoor heated pool, boating and fishing on our 22-acre pond, arts and crafts, nature, archery, health and fitness, and climbing our challenge tower. Camp Hemlocks programming is individually adapted to the needs of each camper to provide them the most enjoyable and successful camp experience possible.

The benefits of summer camp extend beyond the exhilarating activities, campfires, and friendship bracelets. Camp is a place to develop confidence and where social skills flourish. Camp promotes independence. Most importantly, camp is fun! Campers often say that they feel as if they are a part of a family while they are with us. They feel accepted and wanted with people who understand them. Camp Hemlocks is a place where each camper has the opportunity to socialize with old friends and make new ones.

We offer the appropriate assistance needed for all campers around mobility, participation in the program, and activities of daily living. New activities and customized support encourages campers to try new things and allows even the most seasoned camper an exciting challenge!

Philosophy and Goals:

People with disabilities have a right to the same opportunities offered to others- to have fun, to try new activities, and to make new friends- in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment.

Easterseals of Oak Hill Camp Hemlocks provides opportunities for people with disabilities to develop their potential, expand their abilities, and explore their interests.

If you are interested in a tour and meeting with a member of the camp team to learn more about whether Camp Hemlocks is a good fit for you, please call or email the Camp Director to schedule an appointment!
